  1. What does the CAE mean by the word "stakeholder".Please define this term so public understand your efforts,thanks.

  2. A stakeholder is a widely used term to describe a person or a group that has direct interest or involvement. You could also say a stakeholder is directly effected by the outcomes.

    Some examples: Students in a school could be defined as stakeholders; patients in a hospital are stakeholders; farmers and consumers are stakeholders in our food system.

    Is that helpful? Let me know if you have other questions. - Elena G.
