Stakeholder mapping is increasingly recognized as an important instrument for achieving local ownership of development initiatives.
A prototype of a wiki-based actor atlas is now available at http://www.actor-atlas.info/
In its current version, the actor atlas includes for UN, EU, countries, international coalitions, sectors:
+ Actor maps (details at http://www.actor-atlas.info/mr-item1): a list of (public sector) actors
+ Statute books (http://www.actor-atlas.info/mr-item2 ): a list of “enacted laws and treaties”
+ Initiative books (http://www.actor-atlas.info/mr-item3 ): a list of initiatives undertaken
The vision is that within a reasonable time span, national governments and the international organisations, would adopt such an actor-atlas approach to map their public sector (slices), current laws, and ongoing initiatives.
Doing this will facilitate synergies, empowerment of local actors, improved diagnostics and (development) therapeutics as explained at http://www.pragmetaknowledgeclout.be/application-cases
