High-Level Multi-Stakeholder Processes

Multi- stakeholder processes can be big or small and may include community, cross-sectoral, regional to continental convenings involving different stakeholders at all levels from the president or minister to the farmer or trade, both private and public sector. Each multi-stakeholder process is developed through close collaboration with our partners to determine the meeting objective and to inform the design of the program. Each convening is facilitated through a participatory and exploratory approach, creating an open environment to enable stakeholder to be creative, honestly engage with one another, contribute, own the process and trust each other. The approach used by ECI-Africa ensures that each stakeholder’s expectation is taken into account and the members hold each other accountable for implementation of the agreed interventions and achievement of the desired transformation. Some of the techniques deployed include use of team break outs, plenary sessions, panels and open floor discussion formats, case studies and key note speakers/ experts.

Examples of facilitated stakeholder forums include:
