terms of stakeholder identification purpose for participation and degrees of engagement issues that will be discussed in further detail in following modules Key concepts discussed include Who are the stakeholders Participants should become familiar with the different types of stakeholder participation and realise that we have all been part of some form of stakeholder participation process at some stage at least by voting Participants will formulate a definition of stakeholder based on their own experiences of participation processes Levels of engagement Participants will become familiar with the spectrum of SP approaches and understand that they vary from simply informing or protesting one way communication flow to actually participating in decisions two way communication flow Participation as human and legal rights Participants will look at participation as a human right and a constitutional right and analyse different legal and institutional frameworks within which SP processes are necessary Benefits of stakeholder participation Participants will identify potential benefits and reasons to engage in a SP process The process Participants will learn what a SP process might entail in terms of required steps various aspects of the process will be dealt with in following modules while Module 4 will discuss specific examples of SP models Documents SP Module 1 Intro Powerpoint SP Module 1 Intro Notes Module 2 Stakeholder Analysis KEY CONCEPTS AND OUTCOMES Module 2 deals with Stakeholder Analysis a key initial step in a SP process and often overlooked This step provides indications as to which stakeholder groups should be part of the process and what the most appropriate participation mechanisms are for the different groups Key concepts discussed include Why do stakeholder analysis Participants will learn that a requirement of any SP process is to first identify the project objective and the purpose for engaging in SP process to form background to who will be interested parties The objectives and steps for a stakeholder analysis will be discussed Identifying the stakeholders Participants will look into the initial step of identifying the interested parties both those directly and indirectly affected This is a crucial step to identify who the stakeholders are what their interests are and what role they will have in the process Assessing stakeholder importance and influence Using different methods such as stakeholder tables and matrixes participants will discuss how to assess the different stakeholders in terms of their priority for the project or the power they may have to control decisions Working Session Participants will carry out a stakeholder analysis for a given scenario Documents SP Module 2 Notes SP Module 2 Powerpoint Case Study Ecological Monitoring in Eastern Caprivi Namibia Module 3A Engagement Techniques Introduction KEY CONCEPTS AND OUTCOMES Module 3a discusses the range of engagement techniques that can be used in SP processes The different techniques may be more or less suitable for the different levels of participation required from informing to consulting and collaborating and need to be selected based on the audience as well as the purpose and stage of the SP process The key concepts discussed are Range of techniques Participants will list potential engagement techniques especially unconventional ones drawing on their experience in SP processes Different techniques for different levels of engagement Participants will analyse the range of techniques listed and discuss how they differ in terms of the level of engagement possible from simply being informed to collaborating Selection of techniques Participants will explore what needs to be considered when selecting engagement techniques Apart from the level of engagement required issues should also be considered that pertain to the range desired for the participation resources available type of audience and specific objectives of participation Documents SP Module 3A Engagement Techniques Intro Powerpoint SP Module 3A Engagement Techniques Intro Powerpoint Case Study Urban Upgrades in Westfield Texas USA Module 3B Engagement Techniques Running a Workshop KEY CONCEPTS AND OUTCOMES Stakeholder workshops are commonly used to present information exchange and discuss views or plan and evaluate options Module 3b of the course will discuss practicalities when planning and running stakeholder workshops Key issues discussed include Why organise a SP workshop Participants will discuss different situations in which a SP workshop might be needed and with what purposes They will look at what workshops might be good for and what they might not be good for Planning the workshop Participants will discuss requirements for SP workshops and issues that need to be considered in the planning phase Participants will discuss what kind of facilitation is needed to ensure equal input from all participants Facilitation approaches will be discussed with an emphasis on those that allow participants to analyse by themselves and help dialogue Facilitation techniques Participants will discuss different facilitation techniques for SP workshops for different workshop purposes setting goals capturing knowledge and managing conflict Working session Participants will experiment with the card sorting technique in a scenario of a policy formulation workshop Documents SP Module 3B Engagement Techniques Running a Workshop SP Module 3B Engagement Techniques Running a Workshop Module 3C Engagement Techniques Strategic Communications KEY CONCEPTS AND OUTCOMES The need for effective communication will be discussed in Module 3c Strategic communication is used to change behaviours and can help engage people Key concepts covered include Why and what to communicate Participants will discuss what information needs to be shared in a SP process and how it depends on the objectives of the SP process and the information needs identified in the stakeholder analysis Module 2 The factors that need to be considered when planning communications will be discussed both internal factors e g culture and behaviour and external ones e g media available Effective communication Participants will discuss the need for SP participants to understand why it is important for them to communicate Other issues that need consideration to ensure effective communication will be discussed including the selection of appropriate channels and messages Use of Netorks The use of networks in specific will be discussed as well as the need to incorporate feedback mechanisms to ensure dialogue Being strategic In an attempt to understand what motivates people to engage in SP processes participants will learn the difference between conventional and strategic communication approaches The concept of strategic communication which aims to motivate changes in behaviour will be presented Working session Based on the stakeholder analysis conducted earlier Module 2 participants will discuss what information needs to be shared what kinds of message would be more effective e g Shock Education and what long term strategic communication goals need to be kept in mind Documents SP Module 3C Engagement Techniques Strategic Communications SP Module 3C Engagement Techniques Strategic Communications Module 4 Planning KEY CONCEPTS AND OUTCOMES SP processes can be applied in different settings and with different purposes and thus need to be planned case by case Using examples Module 4 of the course will explore different situations where SP approaches can be applied and evaluated the basic steps that are required and how to implement and monitor the process This is essentially a practical module covering Opportunities for SP Participants will look into different contexts in which SP is needed from policy development to programme assessment development planning and environmental impact assessment Some examples will be given and discussed both in the context of a large infrastructure project and of policy planning processes Different SP models Participants will review the different phases or steps that a SP process might entail and will analyse some suggested models as well as practical examples of approaches used Communication plan Participants will go through the steps required to develop a communication plan based on the key audiences messages and communication tools that have been identified and detailing actions required responsibilities timelines and costs Monitoring and Evaluating Participants will discuss how to evaluate the success of SP processes through the use of both qualitative and quantitative indicators Working session Participants will prepare a communication plan for which they will define objectives analyse the need for different messages for different stakeholder groups and identify communication initiatives and mix of techniques appropriate Documents SP Module 4 Planning Notes SP Module 4 Planning Powerpoint Case Study Regional Management of the Okavango River Basin Module 5 Representivity KEY CONCEPTS AND OUTCOMES Module 5 of the course deals with representivity in SP processes and the need to consider that not all stakeholder groups have the same voice SP practitioners have to account for all possible constraints that may prevent stakeholders from participating while stakeholder groups can resort to representatives caucusing or NGO or networks support to have a stronger voice Key concepts covered include Who has how much voice Participants will discuss potential imbalances in a SP process and what groups are often left out women and the poorer for example Non accessible language time constraints social hierarchies and other constraints to participation will be discussed in the light of the participants experience For SP practitioners how to ensure representivity Ways for SP processes to ensure representative stakeholder groups will be discussed Points of discussion include assistance provided by the project to people who cannot participate and the role of stakeholders themselves in defining a representative stakeholder list For SP participants how to have a stronger voice Participants will discuss how stakeholders can organise themselves to have a stronger say e g by selecting representatives requesting assistance from networks and NGOs and caucusing Participants will provide examples of existing mechanisms or channels for stakeholders to have their say SUPPORTING MATERIAL

Representivity Notes Case Study Natural and Cultural Land Use in Cape York Australia Case Study A Coordination Platform for Forest Management in Nepal Cleaner Production The reality of global warming is felt all over the world just as the realities of the causes are known to be human activities irrespective of their location on the globe The manner in which the natural resources are unsustainably utilized is the root cause of such phenomenon like ozone layer depletion acid rain global warming loss of biodiversity and depletion of non renewable water and energy resources The UNEP definition of Cleaner Production CP is The continuous application of an integrated preventive environmental strategy to processes and products so as to reduce risk s to humans and the environment The main focus is an integrated waste minimization environmental pollution prevention and sustainable development In this sense sustainable development can be describe as A development that meets the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs This course is in two parts you need to successfully pass CP 1 to proceed to CP 2 Upon successful

can be misunderstood and hence it is very important to start up by defining and explaining what it means On the other hand the term sustainability is more easily understood but does not capture all the elements of cleaner production it is therefore used to complement the term cleaner production Module 2 CP in a Broader Environmental Context CP focuses on the production process and continuously seeks opportunities for improving the process particularly with the view to reducing costs Yet the CP process itself has to take place in and should take cognisance of the legal social and environmental context of the production process This module will discuss of some the main issues involved in this broader context including the Health and Safety of workers and of surrounding communities the immediate and possible cumulative environmental impacts of the manufacturing process and product safety Documents Module 2 Core Notes Module 3 CP in a Business and Social Context In this module we will briefly introduce the concept of environmental accounting and show how it relates to cleaner production and corporate responsibility and its impact on corporate image Environmental
