The report provides the outcomes of six case studies performed in Belgium (two), France, Slovak Republic, Slovenia and Spain in relation to stakeholder engagement in emergency and recovery preparedness and response, in the framework of the ENGAGE project work package WP2. A joint methodology was followed, with the objective to investigate how stakeholder engagement is implemented in practice, how it is understood and what the main findings are. The national cases revealed many good practices of stakeholder engagement, although it is still evident that prevailing involved stakeholders are the official actors. The recently adopted BSS directive which was transposed in the additional legal framework provided a trigger for the improvement of the previous EP&R arrangements and the stakeholders engagement in that respect. Some new approaches and practices on stakeholder engagement can be seen. However, the results also show that more engagement is required and the cases provide information where the improvements could be established. The outcomes of the performed investigation will inform the recommendations discussed in the final report of ENGAGE.
