You are here: / Planning / Concepts - Stakeholder participation

As was explained in the previous section, stakeholder analysis is a fundamental step in the ICZM process. Crucial, however, to the success of an ICZM plan will be the actual participation of the various stakeholders in the process. This means that besides co-operation between the various sectors of local, regional and national governments, also the non-governmental organisations, business and local people need to become involved in ICZM.

Stakeholders can participate in many ways and at various levels. The level of participation as wells as the methods selected should be carefully considered during the planning phase. It can make the difference between failure and success at the end of the ICZM project.
