RESEARCH AND POLITICAL RISK ADVISORY
Political and policy risks are constantly evolving. New threats and opportunities for companies are always emerging. Companies and markets are under unprecedented political scrutiny. Political risk is a feature of doing business in the developing world just as it is in the emerging and developed markets.
Managing political risk is no longer a nice to have. Rather, it is the lifeblood of any strategy aimed at embedding value and assuring sustainable business outcomes. Political decisions move markets in profound ways and only those companies infused with political risk management will survive tough competitive economic environments.
Frontline Africa Advisory provides up to date analysis of political conditions across the African continent. We rely on local resources to gather and analyse our information thus giving us the confidence to help our clients craft winning strategies for political risk management.
COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT AND MOBILISATION
In achieving mutually beneficial policy objectives, FAA considers the community aspect of policy Formulation, Implementation and Consultation and assist in bridging the gap between the private sector, government and communities on common issues. As FAA, we work collaboratively with communities to address issues that affect their well-being and sustainability. We assist companies to engage communities and community-based solutions and leave a positive legacy. Companies that proactively engage the community often find efficiencies in pushing forward with new projects because they have secured the social license to operate.
Government relations sits at the heart of any public affairs strategy. Our solid understanding of the policy making process has enabled us to map and build relations with technocrats, who are at the coalface of policy making. We assist companies in building relations beyond politicians, who in most occasions do not have guarantee of staying in one portfolio for the duration of a government term. Our government relations strategy focuses on departmental officials, who are responsible for the day to day policy engagements and development.
Frontline Africa Advisory believes in broad based democratic policy making. We effectively use various (relevant) platforms to create awareness and reach of key political stakeholders that are critical to achieving client’s objectives i.e policy formulation players.
The media and social media are a critical lever for the dissemination of key messaging and creating policy resonance. We make use of our broad media contacts and social media presence to assist clients with creating awareness to the broader South African public about their broad policy positions.
