Communication for Consultation Plan

Building the new Consortium including the consortium architecture, the establishment of shared services platforms, development of the Strategy and Results Framework and the conceptualization of the Mega Programs will require the participation and input from a broad array of stakeholder groups. The Alliance recognizes that the development of these foundation elements of the new CGIAR will especially benefit from diverse stakeholder inputs.

 

The Alliance supports a clear and transparent process of communication that will enable our key stakeholders to effectively and efficiently engage with and provide input to the creation of the Consortium at key points during the process.  Although coordinated with and supporting other consutlation and communication efforts underway to support the transition, the Consortium's Communication-for-Consultation Plan refers to the responsibilities and work streams of the Alliance.

 

The Plan covers communication for consultation along four operational areas managed and coordinated by the Consortium Planning Team. A key component will be continual discussion and decisions among the Alliance members. Other operations focus on consultation on establishing the Consortium as a legal entity, development of the Strategy and Mega Programs, and identification of shared services that will be provided by the Consortium. The consultations provide feedback that the work teams will use to strengthen the different pieces but will also be useful to the Alliance in the discussion/decision-making process. A variety of communication tactics will be used including face-to-face consultations, the use of appropriate social media for wider, on-line consultations and development and easy access to relevant information and documentation. The plan will be reviewed and monitored on a quarterly basis to ensure that the communication and consultation processes are effective and where necessary will be amended to better serve the interests of all stakeholders.
 
The Plan, as approved by the Alliance Executive is attached. This is a 'living document' and as such will be updated to respond to the communication and consultation needs of our stakeholders. You are invited to read the Plan and provide any feedback or comments to the Alliance Office (f.chandler@cgiar.org)
