Informing policy dialogue and child-focused policy advocacy
The Situation Analysis is a major tool for informing policy dialogue and child-focused policy advocacy. The process of conducting a Situation Analysis is normally linked to key national policy processes/dialogues in a way that it can provide specific policy recommendations and evidence for child rights advocacy, including by partners. Creating necessary ownership of policy dialogue requires involvement of policy makers in the Situation Analysis process and in the formulation of relevant recommendations. Involving central and substantial government institutions as champions of the Situation Analysis results is particularly useful. The engagement of civil society at all levels helps build ownership of the findings. Involving the donor community enhances the impact of the Situation Analysis and contributes to harmonization of strategies for policy reform.
