Policy Advocacy

Our partners have highlighted the critical need for greater presence and bolstered advocacy opportunities in the global policy making spaces. We also recognize that the grassroots and horizontal linkages must be complemented by cogent practice-oriented analysis to inform national and international policy spheres. We have drawn on our relative size and agility to leverage larger institutions, acting as a conduit to bring the voices and perspectives of our regional counterparts to the international arena.
