This paper presents some key findings from a survey addressing the current and future impacts of COVID-19 on stakeholder engagement and partnerships for implementation, follow up and review of the SDGs. The main report - which assesses data at a global level - is available here and an Executive Summary highlighting key themes and findings can be found here.

This additional data summary presents a snapshot of perceptions from approximately 100 African stakeholders who responded to the survey, providing insights from across the region on four key findings in the report. The largest single group of African respondents to the survey were from civil society organisations and NGOs but a wide range of stakeholders, including the private sector, academia, national, regional and local governments also responded.

The survey was commissioned by UN DESA and supported through a grant from the European Commission. This regional summary for Africa has been developed in partnership between UN DESA and a research team from Newcastle University in the UK, with financial support from the University.
