The Independent Review of SRK’s Impact Assessment of Suriname’s Bakuis Bauxite Mine has four goals. First, to help people who may be impacted by the Bakhuis bauxite project to understand what the impacts may be, how to prevent or minimize these impacts, and how the impacted communities might ensure that the potential benefits of the project outweigh the potential damages. Second…to assist the impacted communities should the project resume. Third, to review the (draft) ESIA and show how their deficiencies may be rectified. Fourth, to enable joint learning on how to embark properly on ESIAs regarding projects that affect Indigenous and Maroon Peoples.
