COLLABORATIVE STAKEHOLDER MAPPING
Stakeholder mapping is the collaborative process of identifying key people within your community (and beyond) and organising who, why, how and when you might engage them. This resource will help you identify key stakeholders and consider what interest or influence they are likely to have on your vision, purpose, or project, and why/how they might want to engage with you.
