This concluding chapter reflects on the notable change in public, industry, and government attitudes towards communities impacted by natural resource and energy development. The studies presented so far in this book point to these ‘interfaces’ exercised between the government, the community, and the world at large. The first interface issue is that of scale, location, and focus—the notion of a community or group of ‘people and things’ affected by energy and resource activities. A second discernible ‘interface’ trend is that many citizens, local communities, and indigenous peoples now call for explicit economic and social benefits from energy project development and resource extraction. But perhaps the most significant interface is that between domestic and international law in the governance and regulation of energy and natural resources. International law is driving change in domestic law spheres towards a greater consideration of burden and benefit sharing in energy and resource projects.

Keywords:   natural resource development, energy development, domestic law, international law, energy projects, resource projects
