Advocacy

In a country like Bangladesh influencing the policy regime requires multiple push factors and one of the potential sources of such factors is advocacy. In this regard, PROGGA recognize the importance of policy advocacy and has experts to provide services necessary to make any advocacy programs successful.

Any advocacy programs requires complex mechanisms based on the goals and objectives of the programs and ranges a number of tools from print and electronic media to publishing and maneuvering documents featuring the needs of the programs which would also be based on research. PROGGA has a pool of experienced professionals on advocacy programs and is ready to provide necessary supports in terms of preparing advocacy materials like video documentation, research based articles, publishing regular newsletters, and project promotional materials.
