- Webinar Series on Stakeholder Engagment - Module 1 1.pdf (141.0K) 25download DATE : 2018-09-05 04:58:01
Stakeholder engagement is at the very heart of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. In order for the SDGs to truly be successful, governments must work with diverse sectors of society to ensure that all stakeholders are included in the process of implementing, monitoring, and reviewing policies related to sustainable development. UNESCAP, in partnership with the International Association for Public Participation (IAP2), has been working to help build the capacity of governments in the Asia-Pacific region so they can engage key national stakeholders towards the successful realization of the 2030 Agenda in their respective countries.
As part of these efforts, a series of webinars will be produced as to provide further technical support to governments, stakeholders, and others in the region and beyond. Each webinar will help increase knowledge of participation and ensure a better understanding of the mechanisms and means of meaningful engagement. Some guiding questions for the series includes:
● What are barriers to participation and how can they removed?
● How do you build trust in society in order to bring all stakeholders together around the
actualization of the 2030 Agenda?
● How is engagement institutionalized and made more meaningful?
The series will be divided into several modules, each a maximum of 60 minutes in length. The modules will cover a variety of themes.
