Session Abstract (150 words): 

Funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by Chemonics International and Root Change,  the Strengthening Advocacy and Civic Engagement (SACE) project  focuses on building the capacity of civil society organizations to influence reforms in Nigeria that promote improved transparency, accountability and good governance. SACE works with 16 policy/issue “clusters” (loose coalitions) to build their advocacy capacity to influence reforms. SACE uses a methodology for designing ‘real-time’ advocacy strategies that is iterative and responsive – using a holistic and politically-informed accountability ecosystems approach. SACE will share this approach and lessons on effectively engaging policy communities in reflection and outcome harvesting.
