Module 2 Project Preparation: Stakeholder Support

Overview

Stakeholder support is critical for the success of short-term volunteer aid trips. Working responsibly and effectively with host staff is particularly important, but there are other potential stakeholders to consider. These stakeholders might be from other not-for-profits, NGOs, philanthropists, academic institutions, government agencies, lobbyists, or other interested groups. Investigating potential stakeholder support is a critical step in developing humanitarian aid interventions. It allows you to answer the questions: Who will implement the intervention strategies? How will you leverage and strengthen existing community resources? Who will ensure accountability and measure success?

Prompt

In your reading, you reviewed an example stakeholder identification table for a sexually transmitted diseases program evaluation. For this assignment, you will craft a short paper to identify similar lists of potential stakeholders that could support your humanitarian aid trip. (Humanitarian aide trip is focused on malaria in Zambia). Your stakeholder lists can overlap, but you should have at least eight stakeholders or stakeholder groups identified in total.

You should cite at least three sources from your own investigation, which may include scholarly and non-scholarly sources. The evidence should not be older than five years. 

Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:

  1. Implementers: Identify a list of at least two to four stakeholders or stakeholder groups that could serve as potential implementers for your humanitarian aid trip. For each person or group, provide a brief description and indicate why you believe they are appropriate for this task based on their mission and capabilities.
  2. Decision Makers: Identify a list of at least two to four stakeholders or stakeholder groups that could serve as potential decision makers for your humanitarian aid trip. For each person or group, provide a brief description and indicate why you believe they are appropriate for this task based on their mission and capabilities.
  3. Participants: Identify a list of at least two to four stakeholders or stakeholder groups that could serve as potential participants for your humanitarian aid trip. For each person or group, provide a brief description and indicate why you believe they are appropriate for this task based on their mission and capabilities.
  4. Partners: Identify a list of at least two to four stakeholders or stakeholder groups that could serve as potential partners for your humanitarian aid trip. For each person or group, provide a brief description and indicate why you believe they are appropriate for this task based on their mission and capabilities.
