|Stakeholder Name||Local authorities|
|Stakeholder Class||Wider business environment|
|Role||In many cases, it is local authorities that deliver essential public services in health, education, policing, water and sanitation. And, even if not directly delivering services, local government often has a role in establishing the planning, regulatory and enabling environment—for business, for energy supply, mass transit and building standards. They have a central role in disaster risk reduction – identifying risks, early warning and building resilience. Local authorities have a role in helping slum-dwellers access better housing and jobs and are the source of most successful programmes to support the informal sector and micro-enterprises.

|Stakeholder Rationale||Local authorities have a critical role in setting priorities, executing plans, monitoring results and engaging with local firms and communities. Local authorities form a vital bridge between national governments, communities and citizens and will have a critical role in a new Global Partnership.|
|Classes of knowledge||Local development priorities, local business and their constraints, Technical constraints|
