Stakeholder Engagement

The identification and involvement of important stakeholders and actors for busfleet renewals is crucial for the project success. Stakeholder maps are a useful tool for identifying key figures in the project. This chapter includes a general tool published by Changing Transport and GIZ and a best practice example in Mexico City. Additionally, the report on Bus Sector Reform by EBRD from the first chapter of this toolkit also includes information on stakeholder mapping and engagement. 

Stakeholder Mapping Tool

This tool by the TRANSfer project helps identifying and visualising relevant project actors and their relationships. It facilitates discussions, the respective influence of the various actors on the implementation and development of a mitigation action. The discussion of the stakeholder map can be used to help formulate strategic options and actor-specific actions and scenarios. The stakeholder map usually also exposes information gaps and participation.

Stakeholder Mapping in Mexico City

The C40 Cities Finance Facility supported a project in Mexico city which aimed at developing the necessary feasibility studies for a new bus corridor project including electric buses. Part of this project was also the development of a mapping of stakeholders in the project environment that can be downloaded below. The Stakeholder Mapping differentiates between key players, primary and secondary stakeholders as well as between stakeholders on the national and the local level and in the private sector.
