Civic Tech Evidence Map

This Evidence Map is the result of a collaboration between the Civic Tech Innovation Network (CTIN) – a programme of Tayarisha African Centre of Excellence in Digital Governance hosted at the Wits School of Governance, and the South Africa Centre for Evidence (SACE). 

The Evidence Mapping project aimed to create a common, up-to-date evidence/ knowledge base about civic tech in the African context, to improve support, decision-making and advocacy in relation to civic tech (including more broadly civil society innovation, tech for good and digital governance). At CTIN, we define civic tech as the “appropriate and effective use of digital innovation in connecting government and citizens, in public participation, in transparency and accountability and in delivering public services”.

The result is an interactive tool and user-friendly interface that allows one to engage with the evidence base, while also being able to read literature and download literature, thereby allowing for knowledge creation, sharing and learning. As a living resource and knowledge hub, we aim to update the Civic Tech in Africa Evidence Map as part of our ongoing research strategy.

We value your inputs, queries and suggestions on the Evidence Map. Please feel free to leave comments below or email:
