TOPIC: Evaluating Advocacy and Communication: Challenges and Solutions by Glenn O’Neil

Increasingly organisations are using advocacy and communications to bring about change in a wide variety of areas, from health to development to the environment. However, advocacy and communications face specific challenges in being able to evaluate their contribution to any progress seen.  Glenn O’Neil will present an overview of the challenges faced and the possible solutions that exist to evaluate advocacy and communications projects, programmes and campaigns.
