Policy Summary MSI Studies

In early 2016, the Task Team commissioned studies on what makes multi-stakeholder initiatives (MSIs) work well and why. Drawing from seventeen MSI cases in four countries (Costa Rica, Indonesia, Kenya and Kyrgyzstan), the study pointed to various principles that appear to be key to MSI effectiveness. This Policy Summary presents some of the key findings and recommendations on MSI effectiveness, with a particular focus on inclusion and ownership in country-level MSIs.
