On December 4-5, 2017, a ToT on “Advocacy campaigns planning and implementation” was conducted for PURE-Water project beneficiaries, particularly the members of the Water Sector Public Advocacy Network, Community Working Groups, as well as other active residents from the project target communities.
The ToT aimed to equip the attendants with knowledge and skills on how to plan and carry out advocacy campaigns within their communities, particularly how to advocate for transparent decision making in water resource management and solicit constructive civil society input for improved policy-regulatory environment. During the two-day training the participants worked in groups to develop their respective advocacy campaign strategies for specific water related issues of common concern, carrying out problem and stakeholder analysis, defining the goal of the advocacy campaign, drawing the stakeholder impact map, etc.
The project is implemented by Urban Foundation for Sustainable Development in cooperation with Country Water Partnership NGO and YSU Environmental Law Resource Centre. The project is funded by USAID.
