PUBLICATION: Who has influence in multistakeholder governance systems? (IFPRI discussion paper)
A new IFPRI discussion paper uses the net-map method to analyze social networking in watershed management in northern Ghana.
As multistakeholder governance has emerged as an important feature in development, new governance structures that foster the participation of multiple stakeholders from the public sector, civil society, and the private sector have emerged in various fields, ranging from the management of natural resources to the provision of public services. To make such governance structures work, it is essential to understand how different stakeholders influence decisionmaking and what determines their influence.
The full paper is available through the IFPRI website.
