The rise of Trump, Brexit, populism and the retreat from international institutions are jeopardising the progress made on development and climate by NGOs and movements over the past few decades. As a result, the global advocacy industry is struggling to adapt strategies and devise new tactics to continue to influence decision-makers to safe-guard and advance progress.
