These guidelines were developed to assist project teams to identify,
plan and manage their communication activities as an integral part of
their NRSP research project and to help NRSP interact with its projects
on communications activities and to monitor and evaluate project
progress and achievement for these activities.
Part 1 provides information to help project teams answer 10 key
communication questions as they plan, implement and present their
communication activities from the start of the project to completion.
This information is presented with respect to each question at three
stages of an NRSP project (Proposal, Inception and Mid-term Review).
Part 2 gives Examples based on communication work from other NRSP
projects and assignments selected to help project teams think about the
detail of what needs to be considered and how to document it. These
examples can be adapted by project teams to assist them to develop and
document their Communication Plan (CP).
Part 3 lists resources that project teams will find useful in carrying
out the various processes needed for developing their CP. These include:
guidelines on how to develop a CP; examples of CPs from other NRSP
projects; and guidelines on specific kinds of activities such as
developing a website or carrying out a survey on the communication
context of stakeholders.
