Realizing the need of resources and materials on various policy issues, GoGo Foundation conducts policy research on issues such as participatory governance, aid transparency, political financing, electoral integrity, social accountability mechanisms, public sector corruption, political corruption, consumer rights and right to information. The research findings and policy recommendations on the issues are widely disseminated among national and international stakeholders comprising the media, civil society organizations, research institutions, academia, government agencies and the donor community.
GoGo Foundation conducts advocacy and media campaign to promote good governance, social accountability, anti-corruption, consumer rights and right to information. GoGo Foundation as well as its district partners regularly organizes interactions, orientations, conferences, policy debate, consultation meetings and round-table programs on different dimensions of the thematic areas it has focused on.

GoGo Foundation has established its networks with local, national and international organizations to strengthen joint efforts for the issues and agenda it has pursued for long. With a vibrant and a wide network with Good Governance Clubs and their District Coordination Committees in more than a dozen districts, GoGo Foundation has able to reach out to the grassroots and build up their capacity to create huge demand for good governance from the bottom-up.
To spearhead media campaign all across the country, GoGo Foundation has established a network with local FM Radio stations in the districts. This alliance has now evolved into a Good Governance Radio Network (GGRN), a first of its kind in Nepal.

This radio network broadcasts good governance radio program, jingles and messages produced by GoGo Foundation.
GoGo Foundation has also built alliances with the Global Organization of Parliamentarians against Corruption-Nepal Chapter (GOPAC-N) and with the National Coalition against Corruption (NCaC) comprising various civil society organizations to consolidate anti-corruption movement from within the Parliament and outside. Such alliance from within the Parliament has resulted in endorsement of international convention such as United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCaC).
