Webinar Outline

As regulators we have been principally concerned with what our regulatory policies and decisions are and their impacts on the sectors we govern. However an equally important consideration is how we as regulators go about designing regulatory policy and undertaking regulatory decisions, especially the extent to which we keep stakeholders involved in our decision making.

The aim of the webinar is to equip regulators with practical instruments and recommendations to design their stakeholder engagement strategies, to make regulatory decisions more inclusive and as a result increasing the transparency and credibility of the regulatory decision-making process.

The webinar will feature distinguished speakers and regulators with direct experience in stakeholder engagement sharing international examples of best practice and case studies of practical challenges in effective stakeholder engagement.
