Advocacy and Policy Formulation
The advocacy component of this strategic document aims to promote positive change and improve the lives of disadvantaged communities. This will be achieved through influencing implementation, domestication, and development of new policies that address their needs.
GSF will focus on policy influencing, strengthening local structures, and developing strong networks for marginalized populations to participate in policy formulation. The advocacy work will strive to alter the distribution of power, resources, and ideas from local to a global level, allowing people and organizations to have more control over their own development and change policies that impact their lives. The target audience for this effort includes local, state, and national agencies, with a focus that adjusts based on the context.
