Selecting strategies: Stakeholder Workshop 2 Print

Participation of stakeholders in the Rendina study site was found to be a difficult issue. It was felt by the CNR, the study site team, that stakeholders had become "participation-tired" and were therefore not interested in participating in further workshops. This was because, early in 2007, a lot of initiatives against desertification had been realized by different entities (manly institutional) which placed a lot of pressure on the second level stakeholders (farmers). CNR was of the opinion that the consultation process through Stakeholder Workshops 1 and 2 being adopted in other study sites, would not work here.


However, CNR succeeded in establishing some links with stakeholders, despite their early skepticism, but had had to follow a different strategy from the other study sites regarding holding Stakeholder Workshops 1 and 2. Instead, CNR organized two formal meetings with stakeholders.
