  • Module 2: How to design and implement an inclusive, results-oriented stakeholder engagement process for action planning.
  • Module 3: Why linking IWRM action planning to a country's overall water- and development-related challenges and opportunities and aligning the planning with other national and international priorities is important, as well as an introduction to useful tools and approaches.
  • Module 4: Experience-based inputs on what might happen during stakeholder consultation, and how to set priorities for the action plan and reach agreements with stakeholders.
  • Module 5: What steps should be taken to maximise the chances that the action plan will be implemented and that stakeholders will remain engaged.
