Advocacy Landscape in Africa
SRHR Advocacy Funding in Africa
As an African initiative, the Accelerator responds to the African context by supporting African-led solutions while at the same time being inclusive of global best practices in advocacy and campaigning, innovation, and learning from partners and allies across the world. The organisation recognises and works towards realising greater health, equity, and social justice as a part of a wider global movement.
Consequently, AAC desires to understand the unique symbiotic relationship between advocacy funders, advocates and community service organisations (CSOs) working in the advocacy sector in Africa and commensurate desirable outcomes for the sector. As one of the AAC's inaugural pieces of research, this report is a quantitative pan-African survey and analysis.
The researcher developed the conceptual frameworks based on interviews about advocate, CSO, funder and sector realities, achievements, and challenges with the AAC Executive Director, AAC Deputy Director, and qualitative research consultant. The study paired a quantitative approach with rigorous statistical analysis.
