Newmont Ghana Goldto resettle those affected and to compensate them for losses caused by the development. A Livelihood Enhancement and Empowerment programme, or LEEP, was set up, with the ultimate goal of improving livelihood security and the quality of life for the almost 10,000 men, women and children who would be directly affected through resettlement and relocation due to mine construction. A resettlement negotiation committee was convened to thrash out plans for land access; meanwhile, dialogue was established with the community through a number of approaches. Community information centres were set up in both the major towns and several of the smaller ones to provide access to information and a channel for communication. Community relations and liaison officers were appointed to work closely with both communities, meeting regularly with traditional leaders, local government and even with youth associations, the media and farmers' associations. The company also set up a women's consultative committee of elected female representatives from the communities. "We did this to provide a gender inhabited by around 1,700 traditional households from the towns of Ntotroso to the north-east of the mine and Kenyase to the south-west. In line with the Newmont Corporation's policy of developing environmentally and socially sustainable businesses around the world and supporting the local communities in which it operates, NGGL began by initiating a proactive stakeholder engagement approach.
