Abstract

The development in the 1990s of stakeholder analysis in natural resource management has largely stemmed from concern that many projects have not met their stated objectives because of non-co-operation or even opposition from key stakeholders, who believed they would be adversely affected by change. Moreover many interventions that have been perceived to be successful by their designers, have in fact achieved their success only at the expense of certain stakeholders — often local resource poor people.

Stakeholder analysis recognizes the different interest groups involved in the utilization and conservation of natural resources and provides tools that help to identify and resolve trade-offs and conflicts of interest. Stakeholder groups cut across society as a whole and range, for example, from formal or informal groups of men or women farmers to government bodies or international agencies and multinational companies. Renewable Natural Resources Research Strategy (RNRRS) managers are most likely to be concerned with groups operating at village level, within a commodity sector or with institutional interests in natural resources sector development.
