One of the most frequent complaints people working in natural resources management make, is that they are bombarded with too much information. At the ARRC, we believe there is no such thing as too much information, rather, it is the way that information is organised and presented to people that is the key to making it understood and useful. Nerida and I are about to start some work with the National Water Commission on synthesising research findings into products that make it easy to access and meaningful to people. How will we do this? We will firstly focus on what story is being told through the research and then link to the supporting evidence and information that underpins it. If you want to find out more about synthesising science we run training and seminars on this topic, as well as recommending the Information and Knowledge Resource Kit that is packed full of advice and tools you can use in your communication activities.
