To further enhance the socialization of the Draft Resolution Plan and assist communities in deciding whether or not to give their consent to the plan, IOI invited all community leaders and Penghulu (traditional leader) to gather together in Miri for a workshop on facilitation and capacity building. Jaringan Orang Asal SeMalaysia (JOAS), a local NGO, and an independent lead facilitator, Dr. Ramy Bulan, introduced themselves and their organizations and talked about their experience with the case and explained how they could assist the resolution process through facilitation and community capacity building. Community members living in Miri were also invited to the meeting. Grassroots representative Mr. Lim Si Siew was present as well.
Community leaders at the workshop held on August 11 in Miri, Sarawak
