Towards a public communication and engagement strategy for carbon dioxide capture and storage projects in Scotland: a review of research findings, CCS project experiences, tools, resources and best practices
6th December 2010
The purpose of this Scottish Carbon Capture & Storage report is to stimulate the design of effective engagement strategies between the public and proponents of CCS projects in Scotland. Engagement is the process of having an informed, two-way discussion as to whether a CCS project is appropriate in a particular locality and context. Successful engagement is not a guarantee that every project will go ahead. Projects may be rejected by publics even if they are technically viable, and establishing if this is the case early on would greatly speed the search for a suitable site. However if the reasons for a CCS project are sound, the plans carefully laid, and social conditions favourable, a good engagement strategy should greatly increase the chances of acceptance.
