This is the groundbreaking guide to Church and Community Mobilisation (CCM) advocacy. CCM advocacy is a local-level advocacy method, in which local churches catalyse their communities to influence the decisions, policies and practices of powerful local decision-makers, with the aim of bringing about good governance. It can involve the use of social accountability tools. CCM advocacy can be particularly useful for local communities who have identified issues that require intervention from local government and other development actors in order for them to be resolved.
