African CSO Landscape 2019
It is with great joy that I offer you this report, drawn up by Epic Africa, in which I participated. Epic Africa and its partners, including the Rockefeller Foundation, organized a large competition, focused on organizational capacity (8 predefined criteria) reserved for civil society organizations based in Africa. Over 1000 applications were collected from over 46 African countries. This report provides a review of the findings and gives voice to African NGOs. We can bet that this report, which I invite you to disseminate very widely, will help advance knowledge of the African CSOs landscape and change practices;

Impact of Covid-19 on African civil society organizations
What impact has Covid-19 had on African civil society organizations? The subject was the subject of a study carried out by the structures EPIC-Africa and @African NGOs between April 29 and May 15, 2020. The purpose of this study was to assess the negative impact of the pandemic on CSO funding and operational issues; understand how CSOs manage and respond to these challenges; to highlight the involvement of CSOs in national responses to the pandemic; and to identify the opportunities emerging from the crisis and the lessons learned.
The report from this study provides a snapshot of the impact of COVID-19 on African CSOs and describes the many solutions they are using to deal with the crisis while protecting their organizations. It also presents the opportunities that have emerged from the crisis and the main issues that will need to be addressed to support the recovery and sustainability of African CSOs.
The report aims to provide essential information and present to donors, governments, the private sector and various partners reliable data on their engagement with African CSOs during and after the pandemic. It is also a tool for CSOs to strengthen solidarity and support mobilization in order to support the recognition and support of this sector.
