Advocacy capacity building

Discuss ideas, issues and challenges around helping southern partners to develop their advocacy

We wish to strengthen the capacity of partners to influence social change in the south and to find out about the techniques used and the experience of bringing change either directly or through local organisations.

There is a scarcity of information on exactly what advocacy work is being carried out in the south. Some even assume that ‘nothing’ is going on. There is, in fact, a wealth of advocacy experience in the south, which may differ from conventional approaches used by northern NGOs.

The group brings together new ideas, latest tools, case studies and best practice on advocacy.
