Stakeholder Forum is an international organisation working to advance sustainable development and promote democracy at a global level. Our work aims to enhance open, accountable and participatory international decision-making on sustainable development through enhancing the involvement of stakeholders in intergovernmental processes.

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 and advocacy; stakeholder engagement and consultation; media and communications and capacity building – all with the ultimate objective of promoting progressive outcomes on sustainable development through an open and participatory approach.

Stakeholder Forum and the Sustainable Development Goals

Stakeholder Forum plays a key role in advancing policy on sustainable development at an all levels. To this end, Stakeholder Forum conducts national, regional and international stakeholder consultations to provide policy recommendations for UN processes, as well as playing a specific role in advocating and lobbying in the intergovernmental context. Stakeholder Forum builds multi-stakeholder coalitions to advocate on particular policy areas, providing background information, policy briefings and interventions where relevant. It also acts as an agenda-setter and thought leader in the area of Sustainable Development Governance. Stakeholder Forum has conducted much work in regards to the Sustainable Development Goals, including:

  • Stakeholder engagement and capacity building – The SDG15 programme, undertaken in partnership with the UN, was designed to help enhance stakeholder engagement in the intergovernmental process to develop the new 2030 Agenda and the SDGs.
