ADPC is pleased to announce that the third Lobby and Advocacy Training Workshop, in collaboration with The Hague Academy of Local Governance (THA), will be held on 4 - 8 April 2016 in The Hague. The workshop is targeted at African diaspora organisations in Europe that want to increase their capacities as agents of change contributing to the development in their country of origin.

Peacebuilding Training Workshop

ADPC, in partnership with The Hague Academy for Local Governance, is pleased to announce the completion of the second Diaspora Academy Peacebuilding training workshop that took place 21-25 September 2015, in The Hague, The Netherlands.

The target beneficiaries of the training are primarily African diaspora organizations, organized professional associations, groups and individuals in Europe active or interested in areas of peacebuilding and post-conflict reconstruction in their countries of origin. Preference will be particularly given to those diaspora peace activists originating from the seven countries located in the Great Lakes and the Horn of Africa regions. For more information please see the announcement.
 

Evidence based research: Advocacy and Lobbying

ADPC is looking for an individual with advocacy and lobbying experience among small NGOs/diaspora organisations to document existing best practices in policy and practical interventions in terms of advocacy and lobbying good practices among NGOs/diaspora organisations. The documentation process is intended to capture context specificities; what worked, why it worked well and the context, as well as key lessons learned for replication where possible.

The research is currently ongoing with completion anticipated for October 2015.
