Book 1 outlines the principles and
importance of effective engagement
and sets out a model for developing
best-practice engagement activities
with communities and other
stakeholders. Creating an Engagement Plan is a fluid and circular process. There is no ‘right way’ to approach community engagement. Every situation and circumstance is different and requires a tailored approach to enable appropriate participation. This kit cannot provide a proven formula for success but offers an exploration of the theory of engagement, guidance in planning and a number of tools that may be useful.
