The COVID-19 pandemic will have long-lasting implications for African civil society organisations (CSOs). The role of CSOs in response to the pandemic is more important than ever before, yet African CSOs are also dealing with the economic and social impact of this crisis. With this in mind, EPIC-Africa and @AfricanNGOs created a survey to understand how the COVID-19 pandemic has specifically impacted African CSOs. Over 1000 African CSOs across 44 African countries completed the survey between May 29th and April 15th 2020.
