Sustainable Energy for All - A Brief Guide to Advocacy Planning

01 Aug 2012

Prepared by UNDP on behalf of Sustainable Energy for All

The International Year of Sustainable Energy for All is a unique opportunity and platform to raise national public awareness and influence policies, commitments and action for the sustainable energy for all goal.

Advocacy is considered the process of managing information and knowledge strategically to change or influence policies and practices that affect the lives of people – particularly the disadvantaged. Advocacy happens when individuals or groups speak up, draw attention to an important issue, take action and direct
decision makers towards solutions. All partners in government, private sector and civil society have a role to play in the success of the Year, and can commit to concrete actions to change the status quo.
