Impact with your support

One of our primary objectives is that our data and the analytic insights they generate will inform public policy and decision-making on the continent

The Covid-19 pandemic significantly interrupted the 8th Round of our Surveys. Midway through, we had to suspend fieldwork for about 6 months. But we quickly adapted and adjusted our fieldwork protocols and successfully:

  • Completed Round 8 (R8) surveys despite the countless complications of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Developed and implemented a COVID-19 module in 16 of the 34 R8 countries.
  • Conducted virtual R8 debrief and R9 planning meetings for all national partners.
  • Disseminated R8 results in all 34 countries (mostly virtually).
  • Undertook a series of multi-country trips for the incoming CEO to present his vision.
  • Developed and disseminated SDG scorecards that gained global attention.
  • Released a series of Pan-Africa Profiles on high-impact R8 findings.
  • Enhanced our rapid-response survey techniques, especially on governance issues.
  • Laid the foundations for an enhanced capacity building program.
  • Finalised the R9 questionnaire with special modules on COVID-19, climate change, and other topics.
  • Piloted and commenced R9 surveys.
  • Established new funding partnerships and secured robust funding for R9 surveys.
