Identifying key stakeholders for an Ecosystem Services (IES) system (adopted from the Sustainable Livelihoods Framework, IFAD).
Beyond general scoping, in any IES system, it is important to identify and consult with key stakeholders, including specific producers and consumers of ecosystem service(s). It is important to understand the motivations, limitations and needs of each stakeholder group. This may occur through discussions with key informants, analysis of existing documents, and research on policy and tenure rights.
