The report is based on interviews with communication officers (or their equivalent) of RDCs and rural industry government bodies. Annual reports and examples of communications were also reviewed. Communication efforts are discussed with respect to multiple stakeholder RDCs (such as Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation), large RDCs with geographically dispersed audiences with diverse needs (such as Grains RDC and Dairy RDC), smaller RDCs which service stakeholders in geographically more concentrated areas and have more specialised needs (such as Grape and Wine RDC and Tobacco RDC), and government agencies.
