A Guide to Multistakeholder Work: Lessons from the Water Dialogues

Author: Coulby, H.
Publication date: 2009

This guide summarises the tools and methods used and the lessons learned from The Water Dialogues – a project that brings together a wide range of stakeholders to address a highly controversial issue around the privatisation of water supply and sanitation services with the aim of improving policy and practice.

Although its contents are rooted in the experience of The Water Dialogues project, the guide should be useful to anyone who is planning to develop their own form of multistakeholder work. As well as providing tips on developing and maintaining multistakeholder processes, the guide also includes examples of potential difficulties and strategies for avoiding or resolving these.
