Note: Cairn defines social investment as ‘pro-active contributions or actions taken by Cairn to help bring benefits to communities where we operate’. These may include community development projects, capacity building within national institutions and developing skills within local businesses.

Note: In 2015 and previous years, education figures included training allowances paid to governments that were also included in the 'Payments to governments' data. In 2016 the training allowances paid to governments have only been reported in 'Payments to governments' data and not in the 'Social investment' data.

Note: A category for 'National contractor training' has been added in 2016. Previous contractor training payments were included under education.
