Streamlining collaboration: A concise toolkit to stakeholder platforms

Effective stakeholder platforms are pivotal in addressing complex regional and local challenges such as large carnivores through collaborative engagement. This concise guide outlines the technical essentials for creating and managing these platforms, inspired by the successful model of the EU LC platform which FACE has been a member since its establishment in 2014.

Stakeholder platforms are temporary, focused groupings of diverse representatives at regional to local levels. Their goal? To create a shared space where open dialogue, mutual respect, and a commitment to understanding pave the way for joint solutions to LC conservation and management.

Creating a stakeholder platform involves meticulous planning and engagement. It starts with understanding the local and cultural context through comprehensive fact-finding, including literature reviews and discussions with local stakeholders. Identifying and mapping stakeholders according to their interests and influence ensures that all relevant voices are included.

This technical guide is designed to equip practitioners, policymakers, and academics with the insights and tools needed to establish and operate effective stakeholder platforms, highlighting the importance of strategic planning, inclusive engagement, and adaptive management in achieving sustainable outcomes.
