This research was conducted in the community assisted by CSR of PT Pertamina (Persero) Refinery Unit II Sungai Pakning located in Sungai Pakning Village, Bukit Batu District, Bengkalis Regency, Riau Province. This research method uses qualitative methods by collecting data through participant observation. The results of this study indicate that the participatory development communication approach carried out by PT Pertamina (Persero) Refinery Unit II Sungai Pakning CSR in carrying out forest and land fire mitigation activities is carried out through four stages of participatory communication namely heteroglosia, polyphony, dialogue and carnival. These four stages of participatory communication are supported because of the still close communitarian tradition and the enactment of deliberative communication in the decision-making process at the local level.
