CSIRO has developed a way to give communities an opportunity to express their thoughts and experiences to companies that operate alongside them. Our approach enables a dynamic interaction between company and community that aims to increase understanding on all sides, build trust, and strengthen relationships. It builds upon knowledge gained from Australian and global communities through thousands of CSIRO research hours over the past decade.
In 2017, Rio Tinto engaged CSIRO for a three-year project to apply the CSIRO approach with communities in the Pilbara region. The project is called Local Voices.
