EPG Victoria conducts socio-economic analysis for both highway and marine transportation projects.  These projects are conducted for government departments, for businesses, and for development corporations.  The analysis is intended to document the socio-community and socio-economic impacts of transportation  projects.  Specific work program steps vary among projects, but can involve some or all of the following tasks:
  • Define the scope of work and socio-economic issues
  • Conduct situation analysis 
  • Prepare community profiles
  • Define both construction and operations issues
  • Interview stakeholders
  • Analyze impacts of project on the community
  • Use socio-community analysis to refine the transportation project
  • Develop measures to mitigate community impacts
