Course content and objectives

The course is designed to help Southern and Northern NGOs build successful South–North advocacy partnerships and identify approaches for building capacity for effective southern advocacy. It will explore methods for the joint identification of issues and solutions; review approaches to achieving policy change in different socio-political contexts; and reflect on the causes and solutions to common problems in North–South advocacy relationships. There will be space to consider capacity building options as well as effective methods for monitoring and evaluating advocacy.

At the end of the course, participants will:

  • Be better equipped to support partners to integrate advocacy work into their programmes
  • Be more sensitive to the needs and perceptions of advocacy partners and how to respond to these
  • Be able to incorporate different advocacy approaches as appropriate to different socio-political settings
  • Have reviewed options for advocacy support and capacity building
  • Be aware of methods for monitoring and evaluating advocacy initiatives.

“Training style and methodology was excellent. The balance between theory and practical application was just right. Simply great – well done.”

Davidson Solanki, Country Representative, Tearfund – a participant on the Supporting Southern Advocacy course
