Case Study No 1

I thought I'd share with you some of the cases we have discussed in class during the risk management course for the next days. By mistake I published already two of them so it might be that you read them already, haha! Sorry about that! The scheduling is not so easy always. I thought they were all interesting including lots of stakeholders, so we had to keep a lot of different stakeholder's interests in mind when discussing them.

The first case was about Stora Enso's project in Laos Vietnam.

It seems like a win-win situation for all but it would be interesting to know more about the land they are growing on, who previously owned it and how much Stora Enso have paid for it. Also, what impact their project has on wildlife and of course if they farm in a sustainable way (do they use pesticides and fertilizers? and if so what do they use, etc.)

Stora Enso have to also keep in mind the safety of the workers that move the mines.

A risk for the farmers could maybe be in case this big corporation suddenly decides to not keep going with this project.

It seems a couple of my classmates might do Minor Field study on this. Cool!
