Advocacy & Policy Engagement

Evidence-based Advocacy

Sound public policies are rooted in evidence.

ICRW uses findings from our research and program experience to inform policy initiatives at the local, national and international levels. Through our evidence-based advocacy, we identify what needs to be done and how to achieve measurable results. We educate policymakers through our strategic communications and advocacy initiatives to multiply the impact of our work to benefit women, men, their families, communities and nations.
