Strategy & Advocacy

AIC bridges political understanding and intelligence providing scope for stakeholder engagement and negotiation, campaigns for raising awareness and organising action items in order to encourage reform.

AIC can focus on specific targeted strategic advocacy that the NGO, stakeholder’s or private sector agents are working towards, or we can work hand-in-hand to map-out plausible goal.

AIC can provide you and your organization with the relevant skills in devising policy briefs and policy proposals. We can assess the policy environment, identify your policy objectives, and support you with development and implementation strategies. We can also draft or edit your policy proposals so that they are accessible, influential and targeted to your audience.
