This week ten people from different diaspora organisations participate in a one-week training on Lobby and Advocacy. The participants originally come from Sierra Leone, Ghana, Tanzania, Zambia, South-Sudan, Uganda and Ethiopia.
The training is developed to support them in designing and implementing a lobby and advocacy strategy and to formulate their priorities effectively. The knowledge and skills that they will gain in this course, should help them to better advance the issues they are concerned with, increase their influence within development cooperation circles both in the host and home countries, increase their voice in the development debates at different policy levels and build strategic partnerships and alliances with like-minded organisations and other stakeholders.
Below the participants are working on the stakeholder analysis of their advocacy strategy. One of the participants is presenting his analysis.
