Desk research on the landscape of the philanthropy support ecosystem in West Africa: Burkina Faso, Côte d'Ivoire, Nigeria and Senegal

This research offers a precise inventory of the philanthropic landscape in several West African countries. 

Wings and TrustAfrica and their partners launched this program to map the actors present in the African philanthropic landscape.

Work Together Consulting proposed a first draft of this report in July 2022 and other events will come to finalize this mapping to initiate this movement towards West African philanthropy.

Driving Change

How to monitor and evaluate support for capacity building?

How to better monitor support for capacity building?

How to ensure that these contribute to the expected changes in terms of greater performance of organizations but also of the systems in which they participate?

How can we thus be able to better steer the development of our professions, our organizations and our public policies?

Resolutely action-oriented, this reference system is above all intended for practitioners, whether they are contracting authorities, technical support staff or monitoring & evaluation specialists.

It proposes both an approach whose motivation is far removed from traditional practices and the methods and tools to be mobilized according to the profile and context of the support to be built or in the process of being implemented.

acteurs locaux de la solidarité internationale

Local and conventional actors of international solidarity:

What joints, what inspirations? 

Faced with the shortcomings of the current international aid paradigm (Section 3), promising adaptations and experiments are already being implemented.

This study exposes precisely this possibility ofmore equitable partnership arrangements that respect local forcesand aiming for moreautonomy for local actorssolidarity (Section 4).

In particular, it describes cascading accountability mechanisms, approaches favoring the local management of responses and the difficulties linked to the redesign of the role of intermediary for conventional and/or international actors.

Finally, it is interested in a more transformative way of the sector which seeks moreinclusiveness within the international system, areal reversal of powerand possibly aredefining the principles of international aid(Section 5).

Management of international development and humanitarian action projects

In a context where the links between theworld of international development and humanitarian actionare increasingly desired and required, this book is also intended as a contribution to an integrated understanding of project management in these two areas of expertise. We are convinced of theimportance of ensuring a continuum in humanitarian and development interventions.

This book shows in an innovative way that it is possible to adopt values, principles and a common approach while highlighting the distinctions and nuances that are necessary for an optimal understanding of the different issues and challenges of projects, whether humanitarian or development.
