About Us

Stakeholder Forum is an international non-governmental organisation working to advance the achievement of sustainable development on a global level.

Stakeholder Forum seeks to provide a bridge between those who have a stake in sustainable development, and the international forums where decisions are made in their name. To this end, we work with a diversity of stakeholders globally on international policy development, media and communications, advocacy, lobbying, consultation and evaluation to promote progressive outcomes on sustainable development through an open and participatory approach. The organisation played a key role in the preparations for and follow-up to the World Summit on Sustainable Development. It is the lead organisation in the development and facilitating of multi-stakeholder processes for sustainable development.

In October 2004 Stakeholder Forum became, after seventeen years, a free-standing organization in its own right. It took the opportunity to rename itself, feeling that Stakeholder Forum for a Common Future looked back to the Brundtland Report in 1987, while Stakeholder Forum for a sustainable future looked forward.

Stakeholder Forum has offices in London and New York, and works with consultants from around the globe. Stakeholder Forum is a non-for-profit organisation and receives funding from governments, UN agencies, foundations and international financial institutions.

Outreach from UNFCCC COP-15 in Copenhagen


In order to capture the many different voices represented at the climate change negotiations, Stakeholder Forum produced our daily publication, Outreach, from the conference floor of the UNFCCC Committee of the Parties-15 in Copenhagen. For a unique insight into the views, recommendations and observations of a wide range of actors, organisations and sectors, have a flick through the 10 editions of Outreach.


Stakeholder Forum was commissioned by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to produce this guide for NGOs and civil society advocates which provides advice and recommendations on how to influence the development and implementation of international agreements on environmental issues.
