"To facilitate and coordinate the implementation of applied geoscience programmes in East and Southeast Asia in order to contribute to economic development and an improved quality of life within the region."

CCSM Indonesia Case Study Workshop (C1W2) on Public Engagement of CCS Projects


The Case Study Workshop, C1W2, was organised in Surabaya, Indonesia on 4-6 November 2015 in cooperation with the Geological Agency of Indonesia and LEMIGAS, both with the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources. The CCS-M is financially supported by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs thru the Royal Norwegian Embassy (RNE) - Jakarta and Global CCS Institute.

The public and society at large are key players in the development and implementation of CO2 capture, use and storage (CCS) technologies, and the planning for public engagement and outreach is critical to the acceptance CCS. In recognition to this, strategies for outreach and public engagement in CCS Projects have been identified as crucial elements of government policies regarding the implementation of CCS Projects.

Aware of these issues, C1W2 was designed to be practical, with focus on developing the knowledge and capacities of the participants from the CCOP member countries. The objective is to learn from experiences of CCS projects concerning the role that public engagement and communication play in the success and failure of CCS Projects. The Workshop discussed deeper into the experiences and detailed case studies of public outreach practices (lessons learned) of various CCS Projects. The resource persons is led by Peta Ashworth and Franz Curran of the University of Queensland, Australia. Peta is formerly a research group leader of CSIRO- Australia. The rest of the resource persons are from Indonesia’s CCS Gundih Pilot Project and other CCOP member countries.

A total of 50 participants from CCOP member countries: Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam attended the Workshop. The number also includes the resource persons from Australia, CCOP TS and representatives from Taiwan CCSU Association that participated as observers.

The presentations and discussions covered the following topics:

  • Overview and update of the CCS Gundih Pilot Project
  • Why the need for Outreach and Public Engagement (PE) for CCS Projects?
  • Technology and other tools/ techniques to improve PE
  • PE case studies: best practices and lessons learned
  • Presentation of the results from the early Public Engagement activities for CCS Gundih Project (Indonesia) - stakeholder mapping activities.

In addition to the presentation related to Public Engagement, some member countries (China, Malaysia, Japan and Korea) presented updates related to CCS Technology and policy developments in their country. The learnings from the workshop can also be applied to other projects that require public engagement and outreach.

A 1-day field trip was organised by the host to visit the Gundhi CCS Pilot Project in Blora.  This CO2 injection Project is the first in Southeast Asia and will offer a valuable learning experience not only to Indonesia but to all CCOP countries.
