Catalysts for Change supported Counterpart International and CIVICUS in the design and facilitation of six regional workshops with local civil society organizations across the globe. Catalysts for Change led a team of facilitators that guided participants through a co-creation process to identify the challenges and needs of civil society in each region, culminating in recommended functions and priorities for the “incubation” phase of this USAID and Sida-funded project.

Catalysts for Change is leading a participatory process of engagement with key stakeholders to research, conceptualize, and implement an East Africa-based Advocacy Accelerator. The Advocacy Accelerator will strengthen advocacy capacity, alignment, and impact in the Global South by providing online and in-person platforms for advocates and their supporters to share experiences, evidence, and approaches. See the report authored by Catalyst for Change outlining the findings and recommendations from interviews with 90 donors, researchers, and advocates to inform this work.

Catalysts for Change helped design and lead a global consultation of advocates and thought leaders from around the world to share experiences and perspectives from their work and local contexts on sexual and reproductive health and rights. The priorities discussed at the consultation, which was held at the 2016 Women Deliver Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, will inform an emerging sexual and reproductive health and rights advocacy agenda for how the next U.S. Administration can most productively advance the needs of women and girls around the world.
Catalysts for Change partnered with Global Health Visions to conduct research, facilitate engagement, and develop and advocate for the recommendations in a report outlining how civil society can have a greater and more meaningful role in the new World Bank-led Global Financing Facility for Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health (GFF). Catalysts for Change led the facilitation of a meeting in Nairobi, Kenya with 45 civil society representatives from 13 countries who helped to shape the minimum standards for civil society engagement in the GFF recommended in the report.
