This editorial will help strengthen the operational sustainability specifically the governance and leadership of civil society including newly formed and emerging organisations. This resource is meant to be an easy-to-read reference to help strengthen actors, structures and systems of entities wit hin the social impact ecosystem.
This editorial is a collection of practical experiences and learning from my experience working on strengthening civil society to improve and sustain their impact on society. It is also a reflection of my experiences in being an integral part of the growth and development of the West Africa Civil Society Institute (WACSI). I am humbled and honoured to share aspects of WACSI’s story.
This editorial focuses on the importance of capacity development, institutional building, leadership, sustainability, knowledge and strategic management. This resource provides 10 pieces of guidance and experiential thoughts that will help enhance the performance of civil society organisations (CSOs) and sustain their operations especially in these turbulent and unpredictable times of resource constraints and restricted operational environments.
This knowledge product would be a valuable resource for traditional non-governmental organisations (NGOs), faith-based organisations, youth groups, women’s organisations, community-based organisations, social enterprises, associations and loosely formed citizens groupings and associations.
