How are we doing? A tool to reflect on the process, progress and priorities of your multi-stakeholder forum

release date: Nov 11, 2020
How are we doing? A tool to reflect on the process, progress and priorities of your multi-stakeholder forum
This handbook explains how to implement How are we doing?, a tool that enables participatory reflective monitoring in multi-stakeholder forums (MSFs). MSFs are spaces that include a wide range of stakeholders in a topic or region, to engage in dialogue, decision making and/or the implementation of activities for common landscape goals. How are we doing? supports enabling conditions to allow the MSF to achieve its goal(s) equitably and effectively. Here we provide a step-by-step process on how to do that. MSFs have gained much attention around the world because of their potential to improve collaboration between different actors, sectors and governance levels to address complex challenges, which cannot be resolved by one actor alone. They can also include actors that, throughout history, have not been able (or allowed) to participate in decision making on land use and land-use issues and/or the design of initiatives that may affect their rights, territories, lives and livelihoods. This handbook is the product of collaboration between members of MSFs and researchers from the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR). The collaboration emerged from the identification of the need for a simple tool to allow MSF participants to monitor their forums, and reflect upon and improve their processes and results. In response, CIFOR held a series of participatory workshops in Indonesia and Peru to develop How are we doing?, to reflect on and learn from what the MSF has been doing well (and not so well); examine progress toward the objective(s), including the challenges faced and the ones still ahead; and support the annual planning process. How are we doing? has three main features that set it apart from other tools. First, it was developed together with members of several subnational MSFs. Second, it was designed to be used by MSF participants themselves, not to be applied by external evaluators. And, third, its objective goes beyond a simple assessment of indicators, rather inviting participants to discuss and reflect on their answers. The purpose of this reflection is to learn from the past, consider progress and obstacles to further progress, and collectively plan how to achieve the MSF’s goals in the future.

Designing for engagement

release date: Mar 28, 2020
Designing for engagement
Key messagesMulti-stakeholder forums (MSFs) are increasingly seen as essential for collaboration -- across different levels of government and among multiple constituencies-- due to the growing urgency to address climate change and transform development trajectories.A review of the scholarly literature reveals that more equitable and resilient MSFs require a shift in emphasis away from how to design projects toward designing engagement in a way that addresses a specific situation or context.Designing for engagement combines top-down with bottom-up approaches, starting with a period of research and meetings at upper levels to understand the potential challenges that local project implementers face within the broader context they are encountering.This process is engaged, committed and adaptive, supporting a spirit of co-learning among all actors, building mutual respect and trust over time.This approach has the best chance of resilience in the face of change or challenge, and of leading to equitable outcomes -- and is not fostered by the increasingly short-term nature of donor funding and the emphasis on simple quantitative impact indicators.

Models of participation in multi-stakeholder forums

release date: Mar 28, 2020
Models of participation in multi-stakeholder forums
Key messagesMulti-stakeholder forums (MSFs) are receiving widespread attention due to the growing urgency to address climate change and transform development trajectories.Systematic reviews oversimplify complex social settings by ignoring context and process, both key to the success of MSFs. The Realist Synthesis Review (RSR) method addresses this oversight and explains why initiatives succeed or fail.The RSR method led to the extraction of four main models used to foster sustainable land use through MSFs: sustainability, livelihoods, participation and multilevel processes.Results reveal the need to shift from seeing context as an obstacle that must be surpassed for more successful initiatives, to thinking of how to design initiatives that respond to context.
