Social Performance Management

We offer Social Performance Management support to businesses at all stages, from early project conception to development, operations and decommissioning. We work closely with project teams providing technical assistance across the social performance remit which includes environmental and social impact assessment and management planning, community relations, land access and social investment. We will also act an interim in-house Social Performance team for companies that may not have dedicated in-house practitioners but need social performance advice and assistance during early project development. We are also passionate working with others to develop their Social Performance skills and capabilities.

Our Services include:

  • Carrying out social and socio-economic impact assessments and baseline studies.
  • Developing social performance aspects of Social Management Systems.
  • Developing and, where required, assisting with implementation of site and project specific environmental & social management plans.
  • Working with clients to recruit social performance practitioners and develop highly effective social performance teams.
  • Developing and delivering tailored social performance training courses for executives, project managers and social performance practitioners who are required to navigate complex social and community based issues.

Social Performance Toolbox

We also offer a web-based Social Performance Toolbox. The Toolbox is a one-stop source that pulls together Kina-created content as well as the most relevant and up-to-date web-based resources available in this field today. It covers social performance fundamentals such as stakeholder engagement and social impact assessment; tools that can help practitioners manage contractors and subcontractors; and useful reference material on professional competency assessment and development.

What we are up to & News


Commemorating Harvard Kennedy School’s Professor Calestous Juma

We at Kina are shocked by the passing of Kenya’s and Harvard Kennedy School’s Professor Calestous Juma. It’s hard to believe that the boundless energy with which he engaged the world through all media on innovation and international development is gone forever. Our last such interaction followed his piece on the limits of leapfrogging for Africa’s development. Inspired by the thought piece, I gave a perspective from the business angle, to which Calestous further responded to me privately.

We are fortunate at Kina to count one of his former students as one of our team. Like the millions of others in Africa and the world who loved his brain and followed his work, we all claim a piece of Calestous, but we can’t claim to understand the grief of those who were closest to him. We can only offer our heartfelt sympathies and continue to build on and implement some of the ideas he shared to help shape Africa’s development.
