More than ever, citizens have many opportunities to participate in decision-making that influences their lives to some extent. Advocacy has a role to play wherever change needs to happen. But instead of accepting the policies as they are and submitting, through advocacy, we try to change them and thus change the course of things.
This is why Network of Women Leaders for Development has been actively engaged since its creation in advocating for the eradication of discrimination in all its forms and calls for a better distribution of programs to combat poverty programs which imply coherence of local, national and international policies as well as a better distribution of wealth.
Le Network of Women Leaders for Development (RFLD) through this process seeks to ensure that decision-making processes are not only inclusive but that policies intended to protect marginalized and poor populations are genuinely implemented. For the RFLD, the effectiveness of the contribution to the development of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) depends on advocacy. It is for him, a process whose ultimate objective is to carry out actions to influence the policies and actions of the holders of power in order to obtain conditions conducive to a solid civil society on the basis of the minimum standards defined each time. possible through multi-stakeholder dialogues.
To achieve this, the Network of Women Leaders for Development, far from being a solitary knight, has joined forces with several organizations for the defense of human and women's rights. Conscious of the fact that it is unity that makes strength in the world of advocacy, in order to obtain many results and have possible weight in the competitive search for political influence, the RFLD knows it is necessary to find allies who share goals and are willing to pool efforts and resources in strong coalitions.
