Coordinated Response & Local Action: Covid-19

Civil society platform for peacebuilding and statebuilding (CSPPS)

This project assists civil society organizations (CSO) in responding to the pandemic's impacts on their work and on wider civil society, highlighting and supporting country-specific challenges, and sharing best practices. To do so, the initiative consults various CSO partners to identify the key impacts of the pandemic in their contexts, such as widening gaps in gender equality and shrinking civic space. CSPPS then facilitates the implementation of the proposed response activities, using their results in combination with a series of interviews, articles, and a final report to support international lobby and advocacy work calling for an inclusive, conflict-sensitive Covid-19 response.
