4. Review the roadmap and obtain stakeholder support
Representatives of local stakeholder groups and international experts should be invited to review the draft database roadmap. Depending on the governance structure chosen, they could be members of a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) or scientific expert group. Dissemination of the draft roadmap into the local LCA user community as wide as possible is encouraged to increase a sense of ownership of the national database process, which will potentially lead to greater collaboration and use of the database going forwards. This review process may include a written review of the document and/or workshops or webinars with stakeholders. Written and verbal feedback should be compiled in a single document alongside recommendations.
The funding strategy and connection to potential donors for roadmap implementation should ideally be well established at this point, with good prospects for securing the funding in time for the completion of the database roadmap.
