Fostering Understanding and Trust with Local Communities and Government Authorities he Ichthys LNG Project conducted in-depth environmental, social impact assessments and stakeholder consultations before the development phase. During the development phase, the Ichthys LNG Project is careful to undertake all Project-related activities with the aim of maintaining good relationships with stakeholders. The Ichthys LNG Project is preparing a social impact management plan (SIMP) for its activities that is based on international standards and more particularly on the IFC Performance Standards on Environmental and Social Sustainability. The purpose of the SIMP is to assess, analyse and manage the Projects impact on local commu nities. The SIMP will encompass a wide range of subjects such as training and employment, business opportunities, cost of living, housing, road and marine traffic, public safety, public services, health and cultural heritage. The Ichthys LNG Project is committed to an open and transparent approach with all stakeholders and the community engagement plan developed for the Darwin Harbour dredging program exemplifies this approach. A wide range of stakeholders were consulted prior to the dredging programs commencement. Up-to-date information is being provided through regular bulletins on the Ichthys LNG Project website as well as on notice boards at community facilities such as boat ramps. Feedback from local community members is solicited through a toll-free telephone number, the Ichthys Project website and via face-to-face contact at community events or during Project briefings. Systems and processes such as a stakeholder relation ship management system and a community grievance management procedure have been developed to manage and address feedback and complaints made by the community in relation to Project activities. T Business activities and CSR Ichthys LNG Project Stakeholder briefing on the Darwin Harbour dredging program Monitoring of coral in Darwin HarbourDredging work in Darwin HarbourLNG plant site, Darwin he Ichthys LNG Project continues to make great efforts to minimise any impact on the environ ment where the Project operates. For example, the duration of the Projects dredging program has been substantially reduced by adopting efficient, state-of the-art equipment and methodologies and planning intense dredging during the wet season, when the Harbour is naturally murky, which are also contributing to reduce impact on the environment in and around Darwin Harbour. When the Projects baseline surveys were conducted, the monitoring team uncovered 8,971 individuals from 271 species including 79 species of molluscs, 58 worms, 48 crabs, 33 other crustaceans, 26 ants and 19 small mangrove fish.
