Topic(s): Carbon capture use and storage (CCUS), Public engagement, Social research

The overall objective of this report is to propose a methodology targeted at creating the most favourable negotiating environment for all project stakeholders—including the project developer—to agree on project acceptability conditions. This process has been partially applied to a real CO2 Capture and Storage project: the ULCOS project (see below). This report provides four in-depth case studies detailing the critical early steps that a project most go through to first understand, then manage, the social environment in which a project is taking place. The case studies capture the context for each step in the process, as well as examples of the methodologies used, the results achieved and the lessons learned and recommendations for other projects. The case studies cover four stages in two phases, the first three explain the key stages in the social site characterisation phase, the fourth the enactment of a stakeholder engagement strategy.
