An evaluation of the Australia State of the Environment 2011 (SoE 2011) report communication products is currently underway. In order to identify ways to improve future SoE products the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities is interested in feedback and suggestions from science communicators, journalists and public affairs officers about the SoE 2011 report.
In this short six question survey, we are interested in your views on SoE 2011 and how we can best communicate SoE findings in the future. https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/soe2011
SoE 2011 is a definitive account of the national state of the environment. Produced every five years, SoE reports support evidence-based decision making and policy formulation. They aim to be relevant, credible and increasingly meaningful sources of information for a wide range of people and audiences.
Written by an independent group of scientific experts, SoE 2011 is a comprehensive review of the Australian environment, the pressures upon it, how we are managing it, and how it is likely to fare in the future. The report covers nine aspects of the Australian environment – atmosphere, inland water, land, marine environment, Antarctic environment, biodiversity, heritage, built environment and coasts. The 950 page report is supported by a 50 page summary or ‘In Brief’ and a number of technical and workshop reports.
Designed to be accessible to a wide range of readers, SoE 2011 contains:
·        Well substantiated information
·        A mix of high level summaries and detailed information
·        Over 300 figures, graphs and tables
·        Graded ‘report-card’ assessments of condition, pressures and management, and
·        Discussions of the drivers of environmental change, resilience, risks, and future projects or ‘outlooks’.
SoE 2011 is available in print and online (<http://www.environment.gov.au/soe/index.html >) and is supported by a summary and technical reports.
