Task leads: Practical Action UK, Practical Action India

Gitange landslide, Darjeeling


Task 2.1: research co-production and stakeholder engagement

Task 2.2: share technical knowledge and build technical capacity

Task 2.3: information communication and outreach

Task 2.4: research into use and sustainability

Key deliverables

WP2 co-production with WPs 3–7.

  • Reports: product/process co-production and capacity development via workshops
  • Targeted multi-media material
  • Report: pathways to sustainability and legacy

WP2 cuts across all the other WPs and underpins the underlying principle of co-production and co-design with stakeholders.

The stakeholder user group has defined tasks in LANDSLIP.

Examples of LANDSLIP-confirmed partners who are also stakeholders are shown in yellow in the list.

LANDSLIP's engagement is centred around state and national levels. This will help to ensure uptake and legacy, particularly with the Geological Survey of India's involvement. The state and national levels already have a good working relationship with community and district levels.

LANDSLIP's co-production and co-design will be facilitated through 22 Indian-based stakeholder integrated workshops, costed and planned in our proposal. In addition, we have costed out Afghanistan stakeholder visits in India.

Five partners have already actively helped in proposal aims and task design.
