Civil Society Directory for West Africa

It has become widely accepted that civil society is essential to governance, peace and development in West Africa. The region has witnessed an exponential growth in diverse configurations of civil society groups working at different levels of society. While the activities and achievements of a significant number of these groups are visible and have gained recognition, in reality, most civil society contributions remain unknown and undocumented. Furthermore, the level of collaboration and networking within thecivil society sector is limited given the challenges of communication and transportation in West Africa.

Standards for Excellence for Non Governmental Organisations and Civil Society Organisations in Ghana

The scope of work, the numbers and influence of NGOs/CSOs have expanded considerably in Ghana, leading to the recognition of this sector as an unavoidable partner in the socio-economic development of the country. As societies in Africa undergo social, economic and political transformation NGOs/CSOs are being challenged to remain relevant and responsive to the needs of the people they serve and to convincingly make their impact and contributions felt by the wider citizenry.
