What World Strategies helps its clients deliver their advocacy objectives through analysis, mapping and strategy. We provide the best, unbiased information on the advocacy trends, issues and initiatives helping clients - NGOs, foundations, international organisations and ministries, understand what is trending, what are the emerging issues, who is making change and what are the key campaigns and events in their sector. We use this analysis to help clients make informed strategies and build strong collaborations to amplify their advocacy messages and achieve their objectives.
When a client is looking to engage in an advocacy sector, it is critical to understand the layout of the sector from the key players and agenda to the opportunities for creating change. What World Strategies provides our clients with the intelligence of the advocacy sector using its extensive knowledge of the industry and its networks.
We specialise in designing and implementing global advocacy strategies targeting. We assess policy options and opportunities, identify the right forum and allies for influence; undertake a detailed power analysis and devise tactical initiatives to deliver our client's objectives.
We help organisations achieve their strategic objectives by harnessing the energy of the advocacy industry by developing allies and collaborative partners. We do this through network development; coalition building and coordination; convening and facilitation; awareness raising and advocacy amplification.
We investigate and explore the social change industry to discover new change-making initiatives and highlight trends and initiatives that are influencing the global agenda. We publish this intelligence in special reports and bespoke presentations.
Kel Currah founded What World Strategies in 2009 to use his 18 years experience of advocacy, coalition building and chairing conference calls to help clients deliver their advocacy objectives. We work with a small staff and have access to a roster of experienced professionals which we bring on board for specific projects. Over the years, we have organised large international gatherings, coordinated advocacy strategies for international events and delivered key advocacy outcomes for our clients.
