Inter-mediation can assist those forming or participating in multistakeholder processes (MSPs) by helping the MSP align around common goals.
Multistakeholder processes are defined by the MSP Portal as
- Processes that aim to involve stakeholders in improving situations that effect them
- Forms of social interaction that enable different individuals and groups, who are effected by an issue, to enter into dialogue, negotiation, learning, decision making and collective action
- About getting government staff, policy makers, community representatives, scientists, business people and NGO representatives to think and work together
