At SIGHT AND LIFE, we see it as one of our key roles to be a strong advocate for targeted policies and effective programs that bring measurable nutritional benefits to some of the world’s poorest and most disadvantaged people. It is our belief that advocacy has a defining, although often neglected, role within the field of nutrition. What does this mean? To answer this question, we need to define what advocacy is – and what it is not. First and foremost, advocacy is not about policy making, nor is it a matter of merely lobbying without a clear evidence base. There is a vast range of options when it comes to how we can choose to speak out on behalf of people who do not have a voice, ranging from non-involvement, or silence, at one end of the spectrum, to violent expression at the other extreme. Between these two poles, we are faced with the choice to express passive interest or perhaps to make a difference via engagement or active involvement. While policy-making is one option, involving ourselves in the creation of rules that guide decisions and interventions to achieve outcomes, another approach, lobbying, focuses on persuasion, often with political or commercial rewards in mind. Advocacy, by contrast, is about identifying a problem, coming up with a solution to that problem, establishing strong support, campaigning for that solution and developing an effective implementation plan. As such, advocacy has a strong emphasis on information-sharing and awareness as well as capacity building.
