IFC launches a new IFC publication, "Stakeholder Engagement: A Good Practice Handbook for Companies Doing Business in Emerging Markets." The Handbook draws on IFC's own learning as well as the current thinking and practices of our client companies and other institutions to provide the good practice "essentials" for building and sustaining constructive relationships over time as a means of risk mitigation, new business identification, and enhancing development outcomes.

Indeed, this handbook - which can be downloaded free of charge from the International Finance Corporation's website is impressive: 200 pages with plenty of background information, tools and methodologies, and case studies from all over the world that examplify the principles.
This book is useful for the corporate responsibility officer in companies, as well as for consultants advising and for NGOs monitoring corporate social responsibility.
