The Communications and Engagement Working Group was established in February 2016 at the direction of the AELERT Steering Committee. The group recognises that effective communication is an integral part of a high performing regulatory agency, and one which has been identified as a common challenge amongst AELERT members.
The Working Group is currently compiling three Risk Communication Toolkits, providing AELERT members with access to best practice strategies and methods to apply in risk communication scenarios. Project deliverables include:
It is envisaged that these products will help AELERT member agencies to pursue their communications and engagement functions in a more strategic and informed manner, incorporating best practice theory and practice. By compiling a range of relevant information into easy-to-use toolkits, members will save time and money that would otherwise be spent devising strategies within each individual agency.
