The focus of the study was on identifying how a group of selected South African stakeholders understood and perceived the communication of climate change and CCS technology. This study explored factors pertinent in the perception, understanding and communication of Climate Change and Carbon Capture and Storage technology in South Africa as a developing country. Through an in-depth analysis it emerged that, while there are several communication initiatives, climate change is still mainly communicated in scientific and academic circles and rarely in the public domain.
