About the Hub (CSR-Hub)
The West Africa Civic Space Resource Hub is a resource centre designed to holistically strengthen the capacities of civic space actors and civil society organisations in West Africa to effectively respond to emerging and longstanding challenges to the civic space and democratic governance in the region, and to strategically reposition the third sector to deliver on their development objectives. The civic space in West Africa has progressively deteriorated through a combination of repressive laws, incorrect transplantation of global anti-terrorism norms, crackdowns on citizen action, and restrictions on press freedoms.
The CSR-Hub through co-implementers West Africa Civil Society Institute | WACSI and Spaces for Change | S4C, aims to build the capacity, organisational and thematic deficiencies of civic space actors and civil society organizations in West Africa through internal governance strengthening, financial resilience, digital security, and enhancing solidarity and collaboration in a strategic effort to promote open civic space and pushback against emerging restrictive trends.
Grantee organisations in Nigeria, Ghana, and Senegal will receive bespoke guidance through capacity-building trainings, learning and lessons sharing, and technical support to enhance relevance, effectiveness, and efficiency of participating CSOs.
