This briefing summarises preliminary study results on the top-three social performance indicators, based on the ranking by community representatives: i) Access to affordable health care; ii) Creation of decent jobs (direct and indirect); iii) Economic prospects of tourism. Overall, the social performance criteria and selected indicators reflected the expectations and concerns of the local communities. Comparison with the operational Lake Turkana Wind Power project shows that similar issues were also considered by that community prior to construction of the project.
