His intro

  1. 1. People who work on the land, or anyone who makes decisions on how the land can be used in a sustainable way, need a sound basis for their actions <br />
  2. 2. Scientific research built up over the last 20 years can add to traditional knowledge- to provide a wealth of practical experience to guide such decisions <br />But what are the best ways of sharing practical, sustainable and new ideas?<br />
  3. 3. Stakeholders are more confident to promote or try new ideas if they see evidence of success demonstrated in scientific experiments<br />
  4. 4. Stakeholders cannot all visit the study sites for themselves- but the evidence can be presented to them on a website, or in attractive factsheets, booklets, policy briefs, posters, video clips all in non-scientific language, and preferably in their native language<br />
