African Civic Tech Atlas Database
The African Civic Tech Atlas (database) is a living collection of civic tech initiatives in Africa.
It is managed by the Civic Tech Innovation Network.
The African Civic Tech Atlas is a living collection of civic tech initiatives in Africa. This database is for the civic tech community to use in research, articles and other, (We would appreciate the shout out though). This is a great resource that can help the community understand what is going on in the civic tech and civic innovation field in Africa and also see who is involved, what they are doing and what successes and challenges they are facing.
The database is for civic tech enthusiasts, innovators and anyone planning a new civic tech initiative.
Africa has many civic tech organisations, such as Budgit/Tracka, SEMA, Mzalendo, VoteWomen, Amandla.mobi, Grassroot, GovChat and Vulekamali which aim to make a real impact on many issues concerning African citizens. Such organisations make use of different technologies to make a real change. These civic tech organisations often focus on issues pertaining to transparency and accountability, education, citizen participation, open data, governance, journalism and much more.
We currently have 144 Initiatives in our database. You can use the field guide by searching for an Initiative by name or via a specific category.
