This Advocacy Report collates the general advocacy activities of CID Members from the period May to
August 2021. The activities mentioned in this report have been collected via a CID Members survey as well as further desktop research conducted by CID. The activities listed are not extensive and are intended to provide a snapshot of CID Members’ international development work from this period.

With crises in Haiti and Afghanistan, many of CID’s Members were quick to respond and provide emergency relief. This was the biggest theme in the overall advocacy work of CID Members during this period. 

Consistent with previous periods, a distinct thematic focus on Covid campaigns and appeals continues. The outbreak in India mentioned in the January to April 2021 period continues to get support, as do other particularly vulnerable communities around the world. Covid continues to dominate many long-term campaigns and appeals focusing on emergency relief and vaccine access within CID Members’ work.
