Multi-stakeholder Processes for Governance and Sustainability
Minu Hemmati
Price: $ 29.95

Governments, businesses, international organizations, local groups and numerous other publicly engaged bodies are turning to multi-stakeholder processes (MSPs) for decision-making as conventional politics is increasingly unable to integrate broad-based, consensual policies.

MSPs bring together all those whose interests are at stake in crucial social, economic, developmental and environmental debates, and for whom finding practical solutions as well as ways in which these might be implemented is essential. This new political culture aims to move beyond deadlock or conflict towards a more equitable and effective process.

This practical guide explains how MSPs can be organized and implemented in order to resolve the complex issues in and around sustainable forms of development, whilst recognizing the rights of, and risks faced by, all parties. It includes detailed examples of MSPs in practice and provides functional checklists, explaining how to bypass adversarial politics and achieve positive results.

This important contribution to the understanding of participatory approaches to decision-making will be invaluable to policy-makers, NGOs, business, trade unions, local authorities and activists preparing for the next World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg. It will be essential reading for all stakeholders, agencies and NGOs, as well as students and academics in politics, development studies and environmental sciences.
