Conducting a Stakeholder Analysis
Brainstorm and prepare a detailed list of relevant stakeholders working in the sanitation sector of your city. To ensure that cross-cutting stakeholders are identified, the below set of potential guiding questions can be referred to:
1. Which stakeholder / groups might be negatively affected by inadequate sanitation? - e.g. urban poor, slum dwellers, women etc.
2. Who are the stakeholders that should be involved due to their formal position? (e.g. governmental bodies, social outreach)
3. Which stakeholders have access to relevant information and resources? (e.g. environmental NGOs, technical consultants, financial resources, access to social groups etc)
Tool 2.1- Enlist the identified stakeholders in just the first column of Table 1.
Step 2 – Identifying importance of role within CSTF
Now that the list of potential stakeholders has been indentified, the following question needs to be answered for each actor:
1. What is current role of the stakeholder in the city? How is he/she concerned?
Tool 2.1- Fill out the current role of the stakeholder in the second column of Table 1.
2. Taking account of the stakeholder’s current profile, what role of the actor would be most suitable within the CSTF?
Tool 2.1- Refer to Figure 1- “Stakeholder participation matrix” and get acquainted with the various roles of stakeholders. Fill out the third column of Table 1.
