Policy and systems change are long-term goals. As such, Charla is particularly interested in building the capacity of non-profits to integrate Constructive Engagement into their organization’s core repertoire of skills.

  • Conducting background research, context analysis, and case studies to identify evidence-based solutions
  • Crafting policy asks that will gain the ear of government and communities
  • Building advocacy materials for public distribution such as websites, policy briefs, key messages, etc.
  • Developing strategies to constructively engage stakeholders
  • Developing evaluation frameworks that measure progress towards policy/systems change
