Communication across and beyond TADEP was critical to the success of the program. The program communications strategy targeted internal (projects, partner agencies, funding bodies) and external (other ACIAR projects, other programs in PNG) stakeholders with a multiple tools, regularity and purposes. The cross-program communications assisted with the identification and facilitation of coordinated and collaborative activities.

The TADEP Updates were targeted at an internal audience and sought to foster an environment of cross-program collaboration, respond to opportunities that arose and to share key learnings from each of the projects.

A program Annual Report was collated following each financial year, conveying activities and progress of each of the five component projects and of the overall program, and also included the program Performance Framework as a critical monitoring and evaluation tool.


As the program progressed, there were stories developing that demonstrated the impact of TADEP beyond the sum of the five distinct component projects. These stories qualitatively captured how TADEP contributed to the higher-level program objectives and ultimately in improving the livelihoods of rural men and women in PNG.
