In Portuguese we also do not have a word for that the alternative is
“multiples interessados” meaning multi persons interested or "todas as
partes interessadas” meaning all interested parts.
However, multilateral exist, is the same word and the meaning is clear,
since was shaped to have this meaning: "multi countries” all sides with
the intention to state that each country has its side.
Best to all
