Over the month of July, the West African civic space has been very dynamic. Many of its actors undertook key actions to improve the lives of citizens. Civil society organisations (CSOs) in The Gambia were particularly active by championing the fight against fraud and corruption. Across the region, several CSOs were engaged in different advocacy actions. In Guinea Bissau for example, they advocated for a better usage of public funds while in Mauritania, public authorities are being called upon by CSOs to fight against the obstruction of free movement of people.

Civil society in West Africa, Cameroon and Chad continued to pursue divergent mandates and face unique challenges, as reflected in the diversity of the population, and the political, economic and social realities of the countries of the region. Nonetheless, general trends can be observed in the activities of civil society across West Africa, as citizens continue to demonstrate their awareness level through their increased demand for change in governance, socioeconomic benefits, free and fair elections, security and social justice.
