This introductory chapter argues for the need to consider not only a wider range of costs and benefits for communities from energy and resource projects, but also the effects on communities at multiple scales and in complex ways. Effects upon local communities now cover a spectrum from negative consequences such as environmental damage, loss of amenity, social and cultural dislocation, and economic disruption, to more positive outcomes such as benefit packages promoting health, education and cultural outcomes, revenue flows, and jobs. Many of these changes can be captured under the concept of sharing the costs and benefits of energy and resource activity.

Keywords:   energy activity, resource activity, energy projects, resource projects, environmental damage, social dislocation, cultural dislocation, economic disruption, health
