Advocacy is the mainstay of the Centre for Local Governance Advocacy. The Centre, through its advocacy unit, seeks to ensure effective and efficient local governance by influencing policies that are national in character but have substantial bearing especially on local governments in Ghana. Our advocacy aims at providing inputs – that hinges on empirical research and in-depth analysis – into government policies to improve the administration, management and functioning of local governments in the areas of service delivery, development planning, budgeting, internal control systems and good governance.

We also engage in extensive partnership with government institutions and other civil society organizations; indigenous and foreign, to promote transparency and accountability in the local governance set-up, by sensitizing and capacitating citizens with the requisite knowledge, skills and tools that put them in the best of positions to demand accountability and top-notch service delivery from duty bearers. This goes to ensure the efficient use of public resources in order to enhance the quality of life of the citizens. Our advocacy takes the form of media campaigns- press releases and press conferences, public speaking, conducting and publishing research, roundtable discussion with office bearers amongst others.

The Centre can boast of a quarterly news magazine called the Decentralization Eye. It is a one stop-shop for local government news that bothers on financial management, programmes and projects of District Assemblies, gender, health and reviews from practitioners. It serves as one of the platforms through which our research findings are published for public consumption. Other means of publicizing research findings include the use of our website, social media outlets and newsletters.
