Just over a year ago, @AfricanNGOs and EPIC-Africa conducted the first Pan-African survey on the impact of COVID-19 on African civil society organisations (CSOs). The survey results highlighted the devastating impact of the pandemic on the sector, opportunities that emerged from the crisis, and critical challenges to be addressed in support of the recovery and sustainability of CSOs.

A year later, African CSOs continue to be negatively impacted by COVID-19 even as demand for their services increases and their voice on social and economic justice issues remains critical.

To continue tracking this situation, @AfricanNGOs and EPIC-Africa are implementing a second Pan-African survey from 1-30 June 2021. It aims to assess the ongoing impact of COVID-19 on African CSOs by focusing on the following key issues:

  • Capture the impact of the pandemic on African CSOs, how CSOs are responding, and emerging trends and lessons that may help predict and prepare for the future.
  • Acquire information at the sectoral and regional levels to conduct pertinent cross-sector analyses and present a more granular picture of how African CSOs are coping.
  • Include funders’ perspectives, explore how their funding practices have changed and may continue to evolve, and how the changes are likely to impact the CSO sector.
  • Compare the findings from the first survey with the current situation, generate data and knowledge to inform and widen the discussion on building resilience in the CSO sector, drive advocacy with funders and governments, and spur actions and tools to “build back better”.

Beyond tracking the ongoing impact of the pandemic, the survey findings and analysis will also contribute to a deeper understanding of various critical dimensions and characteristics of the African CSO sector.

If you are involved in an African CSO, please reflect on your past year experiences, complete the survey, and encourage other CSOs in your networks to participate.

Click here to complete the survey.

The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, 30 June 2021.

It will take you 15-20 minutes to answer all the questions. Participating CSOs should only complete the survey once.

All respondents will receive a report on the survey findings.

Thank you in advance for your participation. We value and appreciate your input!
