How to engage with stakeholders in a broad and inclusive manner

Work at the local level. Coordination around safety and security issues, as well as a willingness to problem-solve to produce results, can be easier to realise at the local level. Furthermore, building a sense of ownership for safety and security at the local level may help minimize the impacts of changes in the national government.

Develop varied strategies for different government stakeholders. Consultations can be social (e.g. through informal discussions), more formal and structured (e.g. through workshops, public hearings or negotiations) or a combination of the two.
