Initiative for Climate Action Transparency (ICAT)

ICAT aims to help countries measure and assess the impacts of their climate actions. Broad stakeholder participation is an essential factor for fostering greater transparency, effectiveness, trust and ambition in climate policies.

The Stakeholder Participation Guide can help countries enhance stakeholder participation in the design, implementation and assessment of climate policies and actions. Enhancing stakeholder participation has been shown to build understanding and support among diverse groups, which can improve policy and action design and strengthen GHG, sustainable development, and transformational change impacts.

The document provides practical guidance on planning and implementing effective participatory processes. It addresses the key elements of stakeholder participation, including planning, identifying and understanding stakeholders, establishing multi-stakeholder bodies, providing information to stakeholders, designing and conducting consultations, and establishing grievance redress mechanisms.

The Stakeholder Participation Guide is applicable to all sectors, policies and actions covered by the series of assessment guides.
