Effective communication with a variety of stakeholders is essential for the success of shellfish reef restoration projects. It is most often a permitting and funding requirement and, when done well, helps people feel connected to and excited about the project. In contrast, if communication and engagement are not done early and well, this can lead to misunderstanding and mistrust, causing problems and delays. Effective communication needs to be budgeted for and incorporated directly into the project planning. This section of the report describes the key elements of an effective communication strategy for a shellfish reef restoration project.
