Territorial /
Multi Stakeholder Approach

What is it for?
The territorial approach is a policy framework that can facilitate the effective implementation of the SDGs. These tools foster broad based participation, by enabling dialogues between core and peripheries, among members of civil society and the private sector. The approach also improves how local institutions relate and interact with each other, especially by incorporating their specific knowledge and practical know-how within policymaking. This allows for an inclusive response to development challenges in a given territory.

What do the tools help achieve?
The tools help bind and articulate various actors in a given territory. They further meaningful multi-stakeholder partnerships comprising the government, civil society and the private sector, stressing the need for interaction and coordination across society.
