‘Making Monkey Business’: Building Company/Community Dialogue in the Philippines

[http://vimeo.com/25199195]

‘Making Monkey Business’ tells of a dispute resolution process involving communities that were impacted by the building of the Ambuklao and Binga dams in the Benguet Province of the Philippines. The mediated dialogue was facilitated by the Compliance Advisor/Ombudsman of the World Bank Group and the mediation was conducted by the Conflict Resolution Group in the Philippines. The film conveys the process as experienced by those who participated – community, company and government representatives – and is told in their own voices. It celebrates what was achieved at Ambuklao and Binga through the power of informed dialogue, and show-cases a process that other companies and communities facing disputes could be encouraged to consider.
