Stakeholder Collaboration is key to finding solutions to the complex challenges of sustainable development. We understand Stakeholder Collaboration as the art of respectfully bringing diverse actors and groups into a creative process that fosters common goals and progress. Our alumni – including community-led development practitioners and their allies – tell us that our methods and experience provide useful guidance that greatly enhance their initiatives. In this course, you will further develop and apply your skills in stakeholder engagement, dialogue, and collaboration for high impact solutions. We will give special attention to applying our methodology to co-facilitating community-led development processes. The training is based on the experience of our faculty, who have worked with over 4,500 alumni in more than 100 countries, active in the public sector, the private sector, and civil society.
