East African Crude Oil Pipeline Site Assessment Report

05/2019 | Ben Miller, Sarah Cechvala, Egidius Kamanyi

During the Fall of 2018, CDA performed a field site visit of the East Africa Crude Oil Pipeline project (EACOP). This report focuses on approaches to the management of the company-community relationship over a large geographical area in the context of a lateral project of more than 1,200 kilometers in length.

The field site visit occurred as EACOP was in transition: an internal operational focus on completing technical surveys and meeting lender requirements was superseded by an effort to establish the capacity and processes for sustained community engagement in the context of construction.
