This is the second phase of this initiative endeavoring to implement a conflict prevention process identifying and establishing community-liaison mechanisms that mitigates potential risks of conflict in La Tola Grande Neighborhood with regards to Ferrero’s factory presence. This project is framed on Esquel’s Community Liaison line of action: a crosscutting component in all initiatives and projects. It has considered the implementation of a sustained dialogue-consensus process between Ferrero Ecuador S.A. and the population of La Tola Grande neighborhood, a community located 23 km from Quito, attempting to define and implement a comprehensive Community Liaison Plan.
Thus far, the local community has actively participated in and validated this process. Hence, this Plan stands for the joint effort and commitment of both groups of actors, considering specific responsibilities and deadlines for each of them.
