Community Information Needs: Access to Information Through the Mining Life Cycle Working

Descripción del documento: 
Simply providing information does not ensure that a message will be understood in a community or that information will be disseminated widely. People’s comprehension of information may be affected by how the information is communicated, the process of communication, an individual's ability to access and use information and the prior relationship between industry and the community. This paper reviews some factors that affect the process of communication, key information needs encountered at community levels and mechanisms for encouraging access to information.
