Within REFORM, external communication and dissemination will play an important role in achieving its overall goal. This report defines the overarching communication and dissemination objectives of the project. REFORM’s communication objective is to increase awareness and appreciation for the need, potential and benefits of river restoration through active involvement of and dissemination of project outputs to policy-makers, practitioners and stakeholders. The current Communication and Dissemination Strategy is a “living document”, which can be revisited and updated throughout the project duration. REFORM’s external communication and dissemination will be on the agenda of each Project Board meeting and each annual partner meeting.
