Communication for dissemination. Validated RNRRS Output.


This is one of 280 summaries describing key outputs from the projects run by DFID's 10-year Renewable Natural Resources Research Strategy (RNRRS) programmes.

Principally based on Projects R8363, R8100 and R6759. In the East Asia and Pacific region, projects designed to improve the lives of fishers have worked with communicators from the Support to Regional Aquatic Resources Management (STREAM) initiative to ensure that the results of their work reach stakeholders at various levels and get used. This work aimed to overcome barriers to dissemination like culture and language, which vary from area to area. Cycles of production, testing, and revising—all in close consultation with stakeholders— produced a range of materials. Examples include four-page, picture-rich, Better Practice Guides for producers and two-page briefs for policy makers. To ensure their widespread appeal, the materials are available in 12 languages: Bahasa Indonesia, Bengali, Burmese, English, Hindi, Ilonggo, Khmer, Nepali, Oriya, Sinhala, Urdu and Vietnamese.

The CD has the following information for this output: Description, Validation, Current Situation, Current Promotion, Impacts On Poverty, Environmental Impact. Attached PDF (12 pp.) taken from the CD.
