Advocacy & Policy

IDEA’s advocacy and policy work focuses on building awareness and creating a more enabling environment for Development Education at national and international level.

This includes:

  • Influencing national, European, international and intergovernmental policymakers to integrate Development Education into their strategies and policies, and to recognise the central role of Development Education in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals
  • Supporting members to engage in the policy-making process, including working together to develop policy positions and policy research
  • Advocating for increased investment and strategic funding for Development Education
  • Engaging educational bodies to integrate Development Education into their strategies and practices
