Southern Voices Workshop on Advocacy and Knowledge Sharing

Advocacy is a key tool for linking grass-root action to policy makers, and CANSA and Southern Voices project have understood this. In order to highlight the key elements that lead to efficient and productive advocacy, CANSA in partnership with Inforse is organising the first regional workshop with the aim of providing partner organisations to share their experiences and to learn from others shared knowledge.
