Effective Engagement: building relationships with community and other stakeholders

Effective Engagement: building relationships with community and other stakeholders by the Victorian Department of Environment‚ Land‚ Water and Planning.

In 2005 the Victorian Department of Sustainability and Environment released a three part resource on Effective Engagement: building relationships with community and other stakeholder.

In 2015, it was re-released by the Department of Environment‚ Land‚ Water and Planning (which had replaced the previous Department). It had some useful material and I often refer to it in courses I teach. I was thus quite disappointed to discover it was no longer available. Fortunately, however, I had a PDF version of each of the volumes and, as it is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Australia licence, I can make it available to others as well.

It really is too valuable a resource to lose.
