Food Security Advocacy
What is advocacy?
Advocacy is the deliberate process, based on demonstrated evidence, to directly and indirectly influence decision makers, stakeholders and relevant audiences.
Healthy public policy
Toi Te Ora Public Health Service employs a team of people who support and advocate to local government to develop healthy public policy across the Bay of Plenty and Lakes District Health Board regions.
Food Security advocacy
One example in relation to food security where policy change has been achieved as a result of advocacy was in Tauranga City Council’s Vegetation and Tree Management Policy. For more information, follow the link to a related news article.
