      Advocacy can be defined as the artand science of informing and influencing policy makers onwards to general public to create an enabling environment through legislation, implementation and sensitization on policies and instruments that helps people to realize their rights and responsibilities

      Government has shown exemplary commitment to DRR
      Focused multi-agency approach in recent times has contributed to strengthening policy resolve at various levels
    • Strategic Approach
      Multi-agency initiatives have focused on a multi-pronged approach to policy advocacy. This includes:
      Working with people, mobilising community led advocacy (NNDAC, DMCs network)
      Engagement by civil society networks (DPNet, DIMANN, NNDAC)
      Cohesive approach by INGOs, NGOs, UN and Donors (AIN, UNDP, ECHO etc.)
      Proactive Government Machinery (MoHA, MoLD, DHM, NPC)

    • Sensitizing Political Leadership
      Innovation through engagement with political leadership
      Sensitizing CA members on DRR, launching and distribution of DRR Toolkit to political leadership
