Constraints and Opportunities for the Development of Communication and Participation Strategies
The background analysis focuses mainly on chances for civil society participation, its democratic legitimacy and the existing forms and experiences of civil society participation, as well as constraints to participation and access to information. Furthermore, relevant stakeholders are identiﬁed with a focus on civil society organisations in Hyderabad, which are active in the ﬁeld of climate protection, energy, sustainability, and environment, and their goals, activities, strengths and weaknesses, networks and speciﬁc needs described. On the basis of the stakeholder analysis, multiplicators within civil society that are relevant to the project's areas, can be identiﬁed for participative processes with other WPs. Based on these ﬁndings and in an iterative process to test strategies, the participation strategies can be adapted to the local, cultural and civil society context in Hyderabad.
