Research and Publications on the Impact of COVID-19 on African Civil Society Organisations – Request for Contributions

EPIC-Africa and @AfricanNGOs will publish the second report on “The Impact of COVID-19 on African Civil Society Organisations” in August 2021.

The first report, released on 30 June 2020, highlighted the pandemic’s devastating impact on the work of African CSOs. Until its release, the full extent of the pandemic’s impact on African CSOs was still unknown. Furthermore, as the spread and impact of the pandemic unfolded, the need for more data and information amongst CSOs, funders and other stakeholders also increased.

In response, both African CSOs and other African entities interested in the sector, have conducted various research projects and produced publications focussing on the impact of COVID-19 on CSOs or broader development issues. Complementary to the EPIC-Africa and @AfricanNGOs report, most of these interventions have concentrated on country, regional and thematic experiences, assessing the impact of the pandemic on CSOs’ operations, highlighting how CSOs are coping and responding to these challenges, and identifying opportunities and lessons learned.

All these interventions and outputs contribute to a growing body of knowledge about the pandemic’s impact on African CSOs and the general state of the sector.

As a result, EPIC-Africa and @AfricanNGOs will include a detailed list of all these research and publications in a special “Resources Section” in our new report.

Therefore, if you or your organisation have conducted research and produced publications on COVID-19 and issues related to African CSOs, or know of material we should include in the list, please submit the information here.

We have already compiled an initial list of research and publications (see below), and want to ensure that it includes all relevant material produced over the past year.

The list will be updated with new information on an ongoing basis.

The deadline for contributions is 30 June 2021.

(NB. We will only consider material produced by African CSOs, or other African institutions that focus specifically on the impact of COVID-19 on the African CSO sector.)
