Bringing people together to improve communication of research findings
My work is in integrated resources management and conservation. Some of the work is at the policy level and some is very "on the ground" dealing with the livelihoods of communities and poverty reduction. A number of outputs and findings from these projects are as important as the findings of pure science and social science.
Exposure of project activities and results in the press, tremendously increases the positive impact of these undertakings and greatly improves the practice. We are not getting the coverage required.
My inquiry as a practitioner and not a journalist is what draws the interest of the press in the above mentionned topic and othere sustainable development issues? What would make the headlines if I dare say? I, as a practitioner, and I think many more, need to understand the press better so a win-win situation is created to the benefit of the world.I thank you and appreciate your suggestions and feedback.
