Advantages of Policy Dialogue

This page in:

What is the advantage of involving those who will be affected by a decision in the decision making process? At least two value added gains: relevance and effective communication. You either facilitate their buy-in or understand the rational behind any potential resistance. Knowledge of the policy/decision, understanding of the basic motivations of the decision/policy can lead to adequate implementation and more effective advocacy.

Policy dialogue can create the necessary trust that constitutes the base of all solid partnership. The private sector as an organized entity can have the responsible participation that is needed to fuel that partnership. All policy or decision relating to their role should take into consideration, whenever possible, their feedback and comments. This policy/decision should be jointly monitored and evaluated on a regular base.
