Alliance2015 Advocacy and Campaigns

Alliance2015 advocacy and campaign work is about seeking lasting change to the lives of people living in poverty across the developing world, mobilising public and political support within and across the EU. 

Since its establishment, Alliance2015 has sought to strengthen Europe’s commitment to the MDGs and Aid Effectiveness and has delivered advocacy and campaign initiatives on issues from child labour and education, to HIV&AIDS and nutrition. The longest running public campaign was Stop Child Labour, which had remarkable success since 2003 in contributing to getting children out of work and into school. In 2014, its EU funding ended, and Hivos continues the campaign with different partners.

The partnership actively engaged in the post-2015 agenda and is now keen to ensure that the Sustainable Development Goals stimulate the transformational change needed at public, policy and political levels in order to achieve the new goals by 2030.

From 2013 to 2015, Alliance2015 implemented a 3-year EU Advocacy project focused on building structured dialogue with the EU on hunger, education and the post-2015 agenda. The project was successful in raising crucial concerns on the policy/practice gaps with regard to Resilience & Food and Nutrition Security and Education. It also enabled the development of the Alliance2015 Advocacy Strategy (2014-2016) that has already delivered more support for joint work and capacity development in the programme countries.

From mid-2012 to mid-2015, Alliance2015 also ran an awareness-raising campaign called Food Right Now! focused on hunger and nutrition. The focus was on spreading the message of the fight against global hunger to schools, teachers, and young people, creating the appropriate pathway for sustainable changes in behaviours in the long run.

Another ongoing initiative of Alliance2015 is the annual Brussels launch of the Global Hunger Index (GHI), authored by our members Concern Worldwide and Welthungerhilfe, and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI). The 2016 edition of the report focuses on zero hunger.
