Mobilizing Multi-Stakeholder Action for Reform 2015


Mobilizing Multi-Stakeholder Action for Reform 2015

27 January 2015 to 30 January 2015

Mobilizing multi-stakeholder groups and engaging them in the task of creating pro-reform coalitions will enhance participants' skills in navigating the reform process.

Recognizing that reforms fail when stakeholder interests are not adequately satisfied and differences in beliefs, attitudes, and mindsets are not addressed, this course was designed to help participants recognize political economy issues, differentiate technical from adaptive challenges, and use sound negotiation techniques that utilize the different perspectives of stakeholders to reach a durable agreement.
