The sessions tackled topics such as Overview of Policy Influencing and Advocacy, Steps and Principles in Policy Influencing, Policy Influencing and Planning, Strategy and Steps and Negotiation.
“As people within the poultry business and providing services to meet the nutritional requirement of the nation, it is critical to speak on the issues that can help maintain or improve these services through advocacy. Advocacy and Policy Influencing are powerful tools which can determine the outcomes of businesses.” – Mrs. Victoria Norgbey (Executive Director, GLOWDEP)
