Policy advocacy influences decisions within social, economic, political and institutional systems. It makes use of multiple targeted actions directed at changing policies, positions or programs.

It plays a vital role in establishing social justice and good governance which are essential components of comprehensive development. There are several types of stakeholders involved in policy advocacy process. These include government, civil society organizations (e.g. non-government organizations and non-profit organizations), media and affected community.
