About the Global Partnerships: Evidence Based Advocacy Programme Global Partnerships: Evidence Based Advocacy Programme is a five-year project, funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (DGIS) and implemented in partnership with the International Food Policy Research Institute (IPFRI), aiming at strengthening capacities of CSOs to advocate for a conducive enabling environment. The programme will be implemented in 6 countries: Burkina-Faso, Honduras, Ghana, Kenya, Rwanda and Indonesia. The programme's main goal is to support progress in globally challenging topics related to the Sustainable Development Goals, with a specific focus on inclusion and equity issues. This goal is to be achieved by increasing Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) capacities to participate, contribute and influence strategic debates and policy-making processes.
The specific objectives of the Advocacy programme are determined as follows:

  • Increase CSOs capacities in leadership, advocacy, utilisation of data and evidence, sector knowledge and business development
  • Improve enabling environment in terms of improved policies, frameworks, regulations, budget allocation, services, inclusive business and accountability/collaborative mechanisms
In Indonesia, the two topics that will be addressed through the programme are Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and Food and Nutrition Security (FNS).

Objectives of the Call for Expressions of Interest SNV is looking to establish a panel for service providers (national NGOs/foundations, research institutions, consultancy companies) to deliver specific assignments in the context of its Global Partnerships: Evidence Based Advocacy Programme.
