Advocacy, the deliberate process of influencing those who make decisions, is of significant importance for humanitarian work because it is typically focused on ensuring that people have access to life-saving aid and protection. Advocacy can help make a positive change to policy decision or situation of dire humanitarian need.
This webpage of CARE contains a lot of information on advocacy in practice. The webpage is made for CARE staff and partners, however, it can also be very interesting for others who would like to learn more about advocacy and implement it in their work. Some topics that the webpage touches on are: the role of advocacy in an emergency, critical steps for advocacy, approaches to advocacy, developing an advocacy strategy and taking action and some useful resources for this.
