SNV is starting its Global Partnerships: Evidence Based Advocacy Programme in 2016. This five-year project, funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (DGIS), aims at strengthening capacities of CSOs to advocate for a conducive enabling environment. The programme will be implemented in 6 countries: Burkina-Faso, Honduras, Ghana, Kenya, Rwanda and Indonesia. The programme's main goal is to support progress in globally challenging topics related to the Sustainable Development Goals, with a specific focus on inclusion and equity issues. This goal is to be achieved by increasing Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) capacities to participate, contribute and influence strategic debates and policy-making processes. In Indonesia, the two topics that will be addressed through the programme are Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) and Food and Nutrition Security (FNS).
As a part of CSOs' capacity development, SNV will be conducting the first capacity building session in Bogor, 13-16 July 2016. The first session aims to introduce Evidence-based Advocacy programme, PME framework, and Leadership and Advocacy skills to the CSOs, and to identify action plan and support needed.
