Is seen as a good practice in stakeholder consultations to cross-pollinate ideas and build upon each other's contributions, where diverse perspectives and creative solutions are needed


The world café method was used to to structure the discussions around different issues with the involved stakeholders in the consultation process. The world café method is a structured conversational process for knowledge sharing in which groups of people discuss a topic at several small tables (like in a café).
