Socio-ecological Tools in the Development of Mineral Infrastructure in Indonesia

Start Date: May 2014 End Date: Mar 2015

This research is to support the IndII program in particular to enhance Indonesia infrastructure policy, planning and investment under the framework of the Australian Government program of the Infrastructure for Growth Initiative (IFGI).
CSRM with collaboration with The Bandung Institute of Technology will conduct a research titled “Socio-Ecological Tools in the Development of Mineral Infrastructure in Indonesia”. 
The aim of this research is to develop strategies and tools (including Geographic Information System) that will enable government decision-makers to consider socio-ecological factors in mineral infrastructure planning.  Subsequently, this research will answer two main questions:
- What are the key factors that need to be included in promoting sustainable infrastructure development   associated with extractive industries (e.g. mining projects)?
- How can these factors be incorporated into a tool that can be used to better plan infrastructure development (i.e. transportation corridors) associated with extractive industries
It is expected that this research will have tangible deliverables such as the development of participatory GIS guideline, standard protocols for inter-governmental coordination for considering socio-ecological factors in mineral infrastructure planning and the institutional strengthening programs.
