We are at the beginning of something new and incredible, and its
paths and processes are for the most part undefined and far from
standardized. Social media is a great equalizer and it’s leveling the
playing field for those who can demonstrate adeptness and vision. If
this is you, it’s time to speak up. It’s time to show executives, peers,
and stakeholders that you care.
E-mail and the Internet now make day to day to
communication easier to organise, but distance
makes it even more important to have a clear
action plan with proper phases; to plan meetings
carefully; to specify deliverables and to keep to
them; to be clear from the outset about how
outcomes will be assessed.
Conference telephone calls, internet chat rooms,
project focus groups are all good ways of
There is a need to expand the skill sets among
EC staff, both at HQ and Delegations. Better under-
standing of some key analytical tools is required,
including how to engage in (and interpret) the results
of policy, sector and institutional analysis.
Developing a better understanding of partner govern-
ment’s planning, budgeting and financial manage-
ment systems is also critical.
A clear requirement in achieving this success was establishing the fully integrated management structure
and leadership for the various elements of the program. That task obviously received major attention from
NASA’s top leadership, with strong emphasis on management clearly enunciated by Administrator James
A stakeholder is an individual or a group that has an interest in the program, its outcomes or benefits.
Stakeholder engagement is the process of identifying and communicating effectively with those people or
groups who have an interest or influence on the project’s outcome. Effective communication with key
stakeholders, both internal and external, is essential to the program’s success.
The development of the Stakeholder Engagement Strategy addresses the vital role of engaging, informing and
managing stakeholders in the achievement of public policy.
We show that the group of firms with a strong sustainability culture is significantly more likely to
assign responsibility to the board of directors for sustainability and to form a separate board committee
for sustainability. Moreover, High Sustainability companies are more likely to make executive
compensation a function of environmental, social, and external perception (e.g., customer satisfaction)
Official policies for SME development can be evaluated against their impact upon enterprise culture,
start-up, survival and growth of SMEs, and stakeholder empathy. Each of these criteria feeds off the others.
Enterprise culture will be strong where there are high rates of SME growth. Where SMEs are dominant
features in the local and regional economic and social environment, stakeholders themselves will be
influenced and will adjust their behaviour accordingly.
This template of culture and business and stakeholder development may be used in very different
Mining Members of the World Business Council on
Sustainable Development (WBCSD) established the
Global Mining Initiative (GMI) in 1998. The GMI,
representing some of the worlds leading mineral and
mining companies, was established to provide leader-
ship and direction for the future development of the
mining industry in a sustainable manner. To this end,
the GMI approached the International Institute of
Environment and Development to commission the
Mining, Minerals and Sustainable Development
(MMSD) project, to determine how mining can most
effectively contribute to sustainable development.

The Institute of Medicine convened the Clinical Research Roundtable (CRR) in early 2000 to provide
a forum for stakeholders to discuss approaches to resolving both acute and long-term issues affecting
the Clinical Research Enterprise. It strives to enhance mutual understanding of clinical research
between the scientific community and the general public, while improving the public’s understanding of
and participation in clinical studies.

changing food marketing to children reflect the societal sectors most closely associated with
food, marketing, and health:
The food and beverage industry could take several actions to address its role in the childhood
obesity epidemic. First, food and beverage marketers should take steps to avoid using
promotional tactics that attract children to unhealthy eating. The industry should research and
adopt a code ...
Models are an initial useful starting point and can assist in a more structured and ordered approach to the
planning of events. There is no one model which fits all. It is for the event organizer to perhaps select and
engage with a model he / she finds useful, and one which they can understand, share with their colleagues /
stakeholders and add to or detract from.
These models are not set in stone, they need to be reviewed, but they may well assist as a reference point. As
a visual representation of the key areas of the event planning...
Since its inception in 1999, The World Life Sciences Forum BioVision has
played a vital role in promoting the sustainable development of Life Sciences
on an international level, ensuring that they remain beneficial to humankind
and the environment, and committed to ethics.
BioVision has established itself as a platform for dialogue and debate by
engaging top stakeholders and policy makers from Science, Society and Industry
in discussions of what science can do, what society is willing to accept, and
what industry can produce, all within a sound ethical framework.
Encouraging country ownership and strengthening health systems: Ultimately, governments – together with non-
governmental organizations (NGOs), civil society organizations (CSOs) including affected communities, faith-based
organizations (FBOs), the private sector and others in countries – must decide upon their countries’ health needs and
strategies. They are responsible for making and sustaining progress, and they must be accountable to those served by
their health systems.
The case-studies marked an increasingly complex
aid environment, with new stakeholders and
partnerships for development, and a number
of mechanisms seeking to coordinate donor
contributions in sectoral and national planning
processes. In addition to the sector-wide
approaches and poverty-reduction strategy papers
that were the focus of country office engagement in
2005, there is an increasing emphasis on reporting
and strategizing in order to achieve the Millennium
Development Goals (MDGs), in particular MDGs
4, 5A and 5B.

Business leaders are called to engage the contemporary economic and ﬁnancial world in light of the
principles of human dignity and the common good. This reﬂection offers business leaders, members
of their institutions, and various stakeholders a set of practical principles that can guide them in their
service of the common good. Among these principles, we recall the principle of meeting the needs
of the world with goods which are truly good and which truly serve without forgetting, in a spirit of
solidarity, the needs of the poor and the vulnerable; the...
