The stakeholder register delivered in month 6 of the project (October 2018) was the first deliverable from WP 6, Delivering Stakeholder Networks. This document is a revised and updated version, which describes the stakeholder engagement process as it stands in September 2019, month 16 of the project. Stakeholder engagement is an ongoing process that has developed, and is expected to continue to develop, with the project itself. As we build on earlier work and continue the case region specific work, engagement efforts will extend to include new stakeholders as and when appropriate. In PERICLES we identify five
different groups of stakeholder: (i) policy makers and planners, (ii) individuals/ groups with specific interest in cultural and natural heritage, (iii) citizens and local communities, (iv) developers and (v) businesses and other actors exploiting cultural heritage. The representation of each group within each case region relative to the others and the degree of engagement will necessarily depend on local contexts.PERICLES aims to take an inclusive approach and to achieve this, the sector within which each stakeholder operates and the type of organisation they represent are also identified. In this way, the register will serve as a tool to guide stakeholder engagement according to the planned demonstrator projects while being representative of sectors relevant in each case study region. This report shows that as to be expected, the cultural heritage sector is dominant but that others such as policy, fisheries and tourism are also well quite well represented. As each region is different, not all sectors identified across the project will
necessarily be represented in each case area. Identifying the type of organisation each stakeholder represents will serve as an internal guide to ensure that efforts are being made to engage stakeholders operating at multiple levels and scales.

Stakeholder engagement is an ongoing process therefore this document and the stakeholder register are considered to be iterative documents that will develop alongside the project. Ongoing critical analysis of the register will ensure that the project aims of inclusive and democratic participation and of bringing stakeholder engagement into policy practice will be met.
