This is a guide on how to lobby at intergovernmental meetings, whether as a stakeholder or a government official. Many of the approaches taken are also relevant to national lobbying. The guide will take you through preparing your ideas, consulting with others, helping to understand how governments prepare and how to understand the terms used in these meetings. Organizations spend considerable resources taking staff to international meetings, often without understanding how these meetings work. This book should help make those resources better spent, as those attending should be able to better understand what they are going to attend. If you have not lobbied or just want to have a better understanding of how the intergovernmental governance process works then this book should give you an insight and tools to make your work easier.
