This report is intended to stimulate the design of effective engagement strategies between the public and proponents of carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) projects in Scotland. The report provides the theory and practice for implementing good engagement and communication strategies and for maintaining positive developer-public and stakeholder relations. Key concerns for the public are summarized and key issues arising from an analysis of CCS cases are discussed in the context of literature on engagement and the planning process. Engagement and communications strategies ranging from zero public input to very high levels of public input are described and the arguments given for each.
