 In order to unpack the WHO, WHAT, HOW and WHY of social change, CARE has developed a list of [[:​mel_approach_principles_and_standards|MEL standards]] as guidance when creating a MEL framework. In accordance to those standards, we have created additional guidance with tools and resources that pertain to CARE’s advocacy work. It is evident that advocacy and influencing work will play a large role as we aim to multiply our impact. Therefore, the need for MEL in advocacy work is more important than ever. In order to unpack the WHO, WHAT, HOW and WHY of social change, CARE has developed a list of [[:​mel_approach_principles_and_standards|MEL standards]] as guidance when creating a MEL framework.

 ==== Advocacy and Influencing Impact Reporting (AIIR) Tool ==== ==== Advocacy and Influencing Impact Reporting (AIIR) Tool ====
  
-This tool has been developed to gather further ​information and evidence on CARE’s advocacy or influencing ​win. At CARE, advocacy is defined as “<font inherit/​inherit;;#​e67e22;;​inherit>​**the //​deliberate//​ process of //influencing// those who make //​decisions//​ about //​developing,​ changing and implementing policies// to reduce poverty and achieve social justice**</​font>​.((See CARE International Advocacy Handbook for more information)) ​  ” Influencing and advocacy can go beyond ​government policies, it can include ​influencing governments,​ donors or NGOs to adopt a CARE program model or influencing the private sector to change their company policies or operating practices.+The AIIR tool gathers ​information and evidence on CARE’s advocacy ​wins. It should be completed by country office (or CI member) staff after we achieve an advocacy ​win. Examples include ​influencing government policies ​at national or local level; ​influencing governments,​ donors or NGOs to adopt a CARE program modelor influencing the private sector to change their company policies or operating practices. (See the** ** [[https://​www.care-international.org/​files/​files/​Care International Advocacy Handbook.pdf|CARE International Advocacy Handbook]] for more information and definitions of advocacy). CARE's program activities and fundraising successes are not advocacy wins in themselves, though they may be steps contributing to a win.
  
-This tool captures the significance of the win, the level of CARE and our partner’s contribution, who stands to benefit from the change, and what evidence ​do we have to support ​a claim of change or impactWith the wide range of successes within influencing work and the various roles CARE may have played ​in this win, this tool allows us to identify how significant ​the win is as well as the significance of CARE’s contribution and our partners.+This tool captures the **significance** of the win, the level of **contribution** ​of CARE and our partnersthe **impact** (who stands to benefit from the change), and the **evidence** to support ​these claimsThe AIIR tool is linked to the annual PIIRS IMPACT form for indicator 20 on advocacy ​and policy change. Like PIIRS, ​the tool should be updated ​in subsequent years to capture evidence of actual impact of the policy change.
