Chris Spray (University of Dundee and Tweed Forum) has written a case study for the Ecosystem Knowledge Network based on Tweed Forum's experiences of working on the Eddleston Water Project, entitled Putting People first: Community engagement and sharing best practice in Catchment Restoration. Now entering is 13th year, the project is Scottish Government's empirical study of the effectiveness of NFM. Key messages to come from close working with local land managers and the community include that 'proof' of restoration success is very much in the eye of the beholder and not the originator of the information. As such, how information is shared, with whom, where, when and by whom is often as important as the emerging research results themselves if they are to have an impact. As a result, the project team always 'sense check' their publications and presentations so as to ensure that the messages they are trying to portray are indeed the same as received by the target audiences.
