Stakeholder Forum

Stakeholder Forum is an international organisation working to advance sustainable development and promote stakeholder democracy at a global level.

Global Policy and Advocacy

Stakeholder Forum plays a key role in advancing policy on sustainable development at an international level.

Engaging Stakeholders

Our work aims to enhance open, accountable and participatory international decision-making on sustainable development.

Capacity Building

Stakeholder Forum co-ordinates a number of activities that seek to build the capacity for global stakeholders to get the most out of intergovernmental meetings, and influence policy outcomes to reflect their agenda.

Media and Communications

We have found that new media tools offer a new channel for communicating to new audiences, generating input from different stakeholder groups and tackling sustainable development issues from a new perspective.
