Women's Empowerment and Leadership Development for Democratisation
Girls Not Brides have created this toolkit because we are at a critical time in the discussions on the next set of global development goals. Child, early and forced marriage and the needs of adolescent girls were notably missing from the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which directly hindered the achievement of six of the eight MDGs. We must act now to ensure that child, early and forced marriage is included in the new development framework.
This toolkit is for civil society organisations that want to take action to call for the inclusion of child, early and forced marriage in the post-2015 development framework. It has been created to support advocacy activities at the national level, and consists of a mixture of theory and practical examples. In particular the toolkit will help you to:
•Understand the post-2015 development agenda process and how to engage
•Understand the status of child, early and forced marriage in the post-2015 process
•Understand the basic components of advocacy and lobbying
•Develop a post-2015 advocacy strategy
•Develop a media and communications plan for your advocacy
