These two manuals have been developed for potential trainers of community-based organisations (CBOs) in the Hindu Kush-Himalayan region as well as for advocates themselves. The Training Manual provides a guide for conducting training on advocacy applicable to a variety of mountain development issues and themes. The Resource Manual provides more in-depth material on the subjects contained in the training manual. The books are intended to provide clarity on the concept of advocacy and to help equip CBOs and their networks with tools, strategies, and techniques to help them as they assist mountain people articulate their needs and perspectives to governments, policy makers, and development organisations. Both manuals are also likely to appeal to development practitioners and others interested in promoting people-centred and sustainable mountain development.
