Community and stakeholder engagement

Community and stakeholder engagement for public policy implementation

Community ownership of public policy decisions is paramount to successful implementation.  In order to achieve community ownership, engagement needs to occur at all stages of the process.

Public participation needs to involve those who are affected by a decision in the decision-making process. It promotes sustainable decisions by providing participants with the information they need to be involved in a meaningful way, and it communicates to participants how their input affects the decision. The practices of public participation may involve:

  • Public meetings
  • Surveys
  • Open houses
  • Workshops
  • Polling
  • Citizens advisory committees, and
  • Other forms of direct involvement with the public
