Recent substantial federal investment in carbon management projects, along with the increasing urgency to deploy technology solutions to mitigate the impacts of climate change, has created a great need for strategic community engagement around carbon management technologies. At the same time, the U.S. government recognizes that future development needs to consider the impact new energy projects will have on underserved, overburdened, and disadvantaged communities. To help communities, tribal members, stakeholders, and the federal government begin to measure who is impacted by projects now, how benefits and risks might be distributed in the future, and how disadvantaged communities may be impacted relative to non-disadvantaged communities, the Great Plains Institute (GPI) worked with SWCA to develop a Decision Support Tool for Louisiana. This report summarizes four community roundtable discussions, facilitated by Franklin Associates and attended by GPI, SWCA, and Carbon Solutions, about the siting tool and carbon management.
