Advocacy and Lobbying skills

Course date: 25/11/2019 to 29/11/2019 Duration: 5 Days Course fee: USD 800, KES 65,000

INTRODUCTION

The training course suggests a framework for identifying policy goals, creating a plan of action, and effectively building your case for change. We have presented these concepts to you in a certain sequence. However, you may want to think of these ideas as building blocks that can be used as you find you need them. Advocacy rarely unfolds the same way twice and there is an element of unpre­dictability to advocacy that makes it both a challenging and an exciting approach to solving problems.
