Problems and Purpose

The Multistakeholder Group Process is a very broad category of participatory method and is generally used to describe processes which seek to consult those with a direct stake in a proposal such as the drafting of a new law or the planning of a new urban area. 

While multi-stakeholder group processes vary in form and function to a great degree, the Wageningen University's Multistakeholder Parternships guide identifies the follow as common traits among multistakeholder initiatives: 

  1. "The involvement of two or more different parties
  2. A voluntary and collaborative nature
  3. A common purpose
  4. Sharing risks and responsibilities
  5. Understanding that all participants will both contribute and gain something
  6. The conviction that working with diverse actors will achieve more than working alone."[1]
