Introduction: Getting to know our stakeholders

Stakeholders exhibit great inter-individual differences with regards to their personal characteristics as well as their relation and attachment to the land in question. For instance, an individual or a group can be the owner of, a user of, or concerned with a piece of land. Knowing a stakeholders identity, role, as well as regulations and policy context in their relation to the land. Analysis of these differences is an indispensable tool in the planning phase of a project. Here you find more information on the upcoming live-event, the resources and this week’s assignment:

Stakeholder Analysis

This week, we will be looking at different methods for stakeholder analysis. Namely these are the stakeholder identification matrix, stakeholder power analysis, the wheel of participation, and participation/contribution mapping. These methods allow for differentiation between and a categorization of stakeholders. Breaking up stakeholders in sub-categories of direct and indirect stakeholders is an example for such a categorization. These methods further allow for an investigation of relationships between stakeholders; such as the link between local communities and civil society bodies to governments and ministries.

Join us for an exciting week!
