An executive report which consists of desciptive information about social aspects within the villages affected. This report will be integrated in the full AMDAL report Golder Associates will produce.



This study will collect both secondary and primary data. In addition to published information (BPS, mass media, internet), specific secondary data will be gathered in the field (village office, puskesmas). In the meantime primary data will be gained through key informant interviews at village level. It is estimated 3-5 informants per village will be visited. They include local community leaders, such as village head, tribal leader, religious leader, and other influential person in the village. In addition to interview, the researchers will observe any relevant facilities established in the place and the real situation of the local residents.  In regard to fieldwork activities, the social team will need assistance from Golder’s Fieldwork Manager (Mr. Novianto Hadisuwito) and Government Relations/CLO staff of PT. Sorikmas. The assistance is particularly for travel guide, identification of key informants, and any formal permission that might be asked by local people.
