Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in Africa play a crucial role in enhancing transparency, good governance and informing policy making. Amidst the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, CSOs have continued to play key roles in information and evidence generation, raising awareness, providing relief services, distribution of Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) and palliatives, combating misinformation, among others.
However, CSOs in Africa have continued to face challenges that often times limit their capacity and ability to perform their functions. These challenges include but are not limited to financial sustainability, inadequate capacity, and lack of visibility.
To this end, the CSO Partner Navigator Project funded by the Rockefeller Foundation, with the Results for Development (R4D) and the Centre for the Study of the Economies of Africa (CSEA) as implementing partners is introducing an online platform that seeks to provide peer CSOs, government officials, funders, and global partners with information about the organizational capacity and effectiveness of CSOs based in Africa.
The CSO Partner Navigator Initiative workshop was organized to highlight the features of this platform and carry out the assessment phase/pilot survey of the initiative. The workshop was held on October 14, 2020 at the Wells Carlton Hotel, Abuja, Nigeria.
