9.11 Human and financial resources

Determine the human and financial resources required to achieve the advocacy strategy. Consider:

  • What resources or capacity exists in the CO and with partners? Capacity or resource constraints may require that the CO adopt a low-key limited advocacy role (for example, working through coalitions or passing information to bodies such as the UN).
  • What expertise and experience does the CO and partners have on the issue – the mix of skills and experience in the CO and partners that is critical to the advocacy role selected? Does the CO or partners have technical staff who can provide expert analysis on the issue, and thereby take a leading role on the issue? Do other experts exist in CI, partners, or other networks who could be seconded or contribute to the effort through the CAWG mechanism?
