PISP views lobbying and advocacy as an important means to ensuring pro-poor policies that balance the many special interests as opposed to ones that benefit narrow sections of the society. The main issues/problems that PISP deals with in this regard include community knowledge and participation gaps on national policy reforms, development of pro-poor policies, corruption, violent conflict prevention and peace building, public resource mismanagement and lack of transparency and accountability in the distribution and use of public resources.
PISP shall focus mainly on lobby and advocacy as a means to move forward the good governance agenda. This component aims for fairness and equity in resource allocation and utilization as well as quality service delivery to the community by concerned institutions. It further seeks to promote and nurture democratic governance principles, ideals and practice.
