Community Recommendation • Company should do more intense socialization and simulation as well as engage more community members so they are better prepared in emergency evacuation. • Placement of equipment and emergency signs should not only be placed in the drilling area, but also in settlement area, at least the closest village to the drilling location. • Several early warning systems should be repaired (e.g. wind sock). The amount should be added, e.g. face masks should be distributed before emergencies. • Community empowerment program should be improved, since now the priority for it declines, and the program in fact really benefited the community. • Local worker should be given more opportunity, recruitment should be more transparent so that the community will not be harmed by the job broker’s trick. • Community engagement in socialization of the mining activities and CSR-Comdev program execution should involve wider grass-root community so it will not lean on the village’s elite.
Recommendation• Local Government• The company should be more compliant to the procedure related with mining activities implementation (e.g. related with location permit, should comply to Environmental Impact Assessment - AMDAL, community should be asked for their opinions)• Company should be more transparent, e.g. to the natural resources division that will check the safety aspect, etc, so that the local government could help explaining it to the community• Company should have conduct periodic coordination (e.g. for environmental aspect with environment service, and for CSR-Comdev with Regional Development Planning Agency/Bappeda)• Company• The community should confirm first, if there is matter to be clarified, don’t act on their own• Local government should be more active to help explaining the community what the company had done• Information should be balanced, community should not only see the weaknesses of the company, but also seek for strength and positive things from the company
Multi-parties Forum Agreement• 1. JOB PPEJ will conduct evaluation to the CSR/Comdev implementation committee related to the public complaint on the company program. The result will be reported to the society (company has audit mechanism from National Audit Body, and BPMIGAS). There will be follow up (multi- parties dialog) to talk about CSR-Comdev mechanism.
• 2. Socialization (public campaign) and simulation of environmental impact handling through PKDB (time of each drill, improvement of PKDB work mechanism, noting the representation of society in Ring- I, socialization of PKDB team names, society needs to to be updated and notified on the evaluation result).
• Recommendation and commitment resulted from this forum will not be published to the media/external parties. This will be forwarded to the Regent first and will also issue recommendation letter
Lesson learned• Lesson learned in conducting approach to thecompany so the company “want” to be assessed• Lesson learned in conducting approach to the societysurrounding the mine and the local government sothey “want” to be assessed• Lesson learned in building commitment to thescorecard results• Replication Plan/Suggestion in other area
