GCE has brought together a series of useful learning materials which have been compiled across the work of GCE regional and national coalitions. These examples of good practice explore specific areas of campaigning, from building a national coalition to effective government advocacy. Importantly, they contain learning points and recommendations in order to support other civil society organisations in the development of their own campaign and advocacy strategies.
