2.3.2 Stakeholder Level

One should gauge here how important it will be to engage stakeholders actively in the assessment process (why, who, when, and how). If stakeholders will be involved, mutual agreement on roles, tasks, form of interaction etc. is important.

1. At what stage should primary stakeholders first be engaged in the assessment for this problem?

 before the assessment

 during the assessment

 after the assessment

2. Stakeholders can contribute to the process in three different ways: (1) by helping to improve the formulation and framing of the problem, (2) by contributing their knowledge and imagination on the problem at hand, and (3) by assisting in quality control through extended peer review. What contribution and role of each of the stakeholders is envisaged?

  problem definition and choice of indicators source of knowledge extended peer review
Cabinet and ministries (national)
Parliament (national)
Governmental advisory boards and councils
Other governmental actors (local/regional/international)
Other governmental 'planning offices' (CPB, SCP, RPB)
Research institutes/consultancies
Sector-specific actors (from, e.g., agriculture, transport, industry)

Environmental and consumer organizations
Unorganized stakeholders; citizens

3. Describe the forms this engagement should take for each of the identified stake-holder groups (using table 3).
