The Stakeholder Engagement Handbook tries to build upon globally accepted models of stakeholder engagement such as the ones developed by AccountAbility, Global Reporting Initiative, and the International Finance Corporation. The Handbook strives towards marrying experiences and ideas on corporate social responsibility generated at the national and international levels with ground realities in the Indian context. The Handbook seeks to draw upon certain elaborate steps that may be useful for practitioners as well as trainers while dealing with stakeholder engagement. However, it is well accepted that there is no one size fits all approach to stakeholder engagement as it would perhaps not be equipped to deal with the specificities and complexities of the issue of engagement in both project as well as policy decision making. The Handbook is not an attempt to create a new approach or methodology as there exists already a wealth of literature as well as expertise on the issue.
