Written submissions to policy makers
INDICATOR PHRASING: The number of written submissions made in order to influence policy makers
What is its purpose?
Demonstrates influence, number of written submissions such as reports/briefings/letters, produced to influence policy makers and decision makers. Produced by Tearfund, or supporters, allies and partners where our input can be attributed.
How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data
As your organisation produces and submits papers/ reports/ briefings/letters note and count them in a spreadsheet.
If you want internally to disaggregate this you could into different types of written submissions. But as an indicator it is more useful to count them together.
This indicator is mainly for policy submissions, letters to officials or ministers, etc - not petitions which are counted under simple campaign actions.
