Phenix Center concludes a training course for civil society on advocacy and lobbying

The Phenix Center for Economic and Information Studies concluded a training course for civil society organizations on advocacy and lobbying methods.

The course, which ran for three consecutive days in Irbid Governorate, aimed to build the capacities of civil society organizations on the concept of advocacy and its role in activating advocacy processes to advocate for civil society issues.

The training course also aimed to equip civil society organizations with the practical skills needed in the advocacy process and building networks and campaigns to make a real impact in the local community.

The course focused on enabling representatives of associations to know the effective strategy of advocacy operations, its objectives, and steps, in addition to practical exercises on how to implement successful, effective, and influential advocacy campaigns.

The course, which was attended by 20 representatives from five associations in Irbid governorate, reviewed the importance of advocacy campaigns and their role in creating change for the better, whether at the level of policies, legislation, or practices.

The course came as many associations lack the capacity to carry out advocacy and lobbying campaigns on the local issues they are interested in.

During the training course, representatives of the associations presented the challenges and obstacles they face when implementing advocacy campaigns, such as identifying the issue and target audience, building the campaign vision, and preparing the action plan.
