Why is advocacy so important?

Our latest podcast in the switchboard talks series features Hazem Rihawi, the Senior Programs Manager at one of our switchboard partners, the American Relief Coalition for Syria (ARCS), in conversation with Bara’ah, one of our technical leads. It demonstrate the need for advocacy for humanitarian work and explores ARCS’ approach to advocacy by working with policy makers and use of evidence and research. Listen/watch to learn more.

In any government around the world, you have elected policy makers, officials and representatives at any level..who usually dictate policy…so maintaining that constant connection with these officials is important for us to build a better understanding of the situation of the humanitarian crisis which will lead to better support from that country, whether political or financial.
