This workshop, from the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), is aimed at locally elected officials involved in environmental governance. It's purpose is to highlight the importance of engaging stakeholders in the process of environmental sustainability and to demonstrate how to ensure involvement of as many stakeholders in programs.
"In any effort to change things for the better, there are parties who are affected by the causes and consequences of the impending change. Nothing is of more importance to the councillor as Guardian of the Environment than knowing who they are, what interests they have in what is being proposed, and what influence they hold over the success or failure of the undertaking. For the next few minutes we will be discussing who the stakeholders are in any effort to achieve environmental sustainability and the importance of keeping them informed and involved."
