Toolkit for Restoration Partnerships

Building a Restoration Partnership Development Toolkit

Context & Opportunity

Restoration partnerships are complex and can be contentious. There is a need for tools that can help diverse restoration partnership stakeholders to develop mutual understanding and deliberate key issues. The restoration partnership development project responds to these challenges, and builds on existing work, to develop an evidence-informed toolkit for strengthening restoration partnerships.

Outputs & Achievements

This project has developed a toolkit for stakeholders to map and deliberate values relating to planned and ongoing ecological restoration in defined landscapes.

The user-friendly toolkit (comprised of freely available videos, apps, and written material) can be used for for undertaking values mapping and deliberation of issues arising within landscapes in which restoration is planned. Those seeking to initiate or support restoration approaches at any scale can use the toolkit to ameliorate contention and strengthen partnerships.

This 2.5 minute video explains the toolkit. Please watch it for an introduction:

Training manual

If you think the toolkit might be useful for your restoration project, the fully comprehensive guide for the toolkit can be downloaded. This gives a detailed introduction to what the tools can be used for, and how to use them in practice.

Toolkit apps

The toolkit incorporates apps. The Survey Generator app is here. Once you complete the information for that app, you will be emailed a link for the Survey Analysis app.

Support videos for using the apps

This video walks you through how to use the Survey Generator app (roughly 8 minutes). Watch this when you wish to use the generator app to build your survey (also detailed in the training manual).

This video walks you through how to use the Survey Analysis app (roughly 8 minutes). Watch this when you wish to use the analysis app to analyse the data from your stakeholders (also detailed in the training manual).

Further documents

Some further documents may be of use as appendices to the toolkit. These are:

Cumbria Survey 

This survey was developed for use in Eastern Cumbria in the piloting of the toolkit. This is an example of the sort of survey which could be generated within a restoration partnership development process.

Welsh Borders Survey

This survey was developed for use in the Welsh borders are in the piloting of the toolkit. This is a further example of the sort of survey which could be generated within a restoration partnership development process.

Cumbria workshops presentation template

These are some presentation visuals which might be useful in explaining the RPD results to stakeholder workshops.
