Advocacy

“Awareness is the first step towards action”

We actively campaign, working alongside our partners to influencedecisions within political, economic, and social systems and institutions. Our advocacy includes many activities including media campaigns, public speaking, and commissioning and publishing research. For us, advocacy represents the series of actions taken and issues highlighted to change the “what is” into a “what should be”. We also:

  • Participate in the agenda setting
  • Propose policy solutions
  • Are inclusive and engaging
  • Open up space for public engagement

We use our own network and outreach opportunities to call for action and share information, disseminate and promote information and report progress, and work closely with local governments or/and communities in strengthening resilience. We attempt to understand the different components of our research and their linkages, and have the means, influence and leadership to reunite the different stakeholders, and influence decision-making processes and policymaking.
