Stakeholder engagement plans developed with AI

Continuing the discussion from Stakeholder consultation assisted by AI:

AI tools like language models can assist in developing a stakeholder engagement plan by identifying relevant stakeholders and providing insights on their needs and preferences.

By analyzing data and information from different sources, policymakers can gain a better understanding of the concerns, opinions, and feedback of stakeholders, which can inform the development of a more effective engagement plan.

Additionally, language models can help policymakers communicate their policies and proposals in a more accessible and understandable way, thereby fostering more productive and collaborative dialogue with stakeholders.
