The EUSDR Needs Assessment for closer cooperation between PACs and relevant stakeholders was carried out by the Danube Strategy Point in closer cooperation with EUSDR Priority Area Coordinators (PACs) and their teams and it is out now!
The assessment aims at supporting EUSDR PACs and their teams in strengthening their capacities, improving cooperation tools as well as enhancing participation of EUSDR relevant stakeholders in the implementation of the EUSDR within the Priority Areas.
The first part of this publication presents a descriptive analysis of the importance of collaboration for MRS and the EUSDR. Official documents and reports in the multi-level policy framework are used and good practices from the 12 EUSDR Priority Areas are presented to showcase EUSDR processes/activities and define causalities between governance measures and stakeholder-induced change.
In a second analytical-explorative part of the publication, the concept of communications management is presented and the need for closer cooperation between PACs and other relevant stakeholders are elaborated. Based on the concept of communications management, a stakeholder identification survey and two consecutive workshops on stakeholder management and stakeholder engagement were conducted with EUSDR Priority Area Coordinators and the results of these exercises are presented in this second part of the publication.
In addition, three annexes provide ready-to-use tools to Priority Area Coordinators and their teams for strengthened cooperation with relevant stakeholders:
- EUSDR stakeholder mapping tool (Annex I)
- EUSDR stakeholder management tool (Annex II)
- EUSDR stakeholder engagement plan (Annex III)
