Title

Advocacy in Action: A guide to influencing decision-making in Namibia

Description

Advocacy in Action is a 336-page manual designed primarily for non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and grassroots-based groups who are interested in increasing their advocacy skills. It contains concrete, practical information about advocacy strategies such as petitions, press conferences, public demonstrations, and letter-writing campaigns, as well as detailed information on government structures and parliamentary procedures - and how to influence decision-making bodies and processes. The manual is written in simple English, with many photographs, illustrations, and examples. It includes actual case studies of advocacy efforts in Namibia. The manual is intended primarily for civil society, but the publishers say it will also be of interest to office-bearers at the local, regional, and national levels. It is best used as "textbook" for workshops on advocacy skills. The manual contains 3 sections that provide practical information about how to plan and implement advocacy campaigns, as well as a background of the Namibian government and how it works.
