The #COVID19 Government Measures Dataset puts together all the measures implemented by governments worldwide in response to the Coronavirus pandemic. Data collection includes secondary data review. The researched information available falls into five categories:
- Social distancing
- Movement restrictions
- Public health measures
- Social and economic measures
Each category is broken down into several types of measures.
ACAPS consulted government, media, United Nations, and other organisations sources to develop this dataset.

Baseline Study of the State of Play of SSG-R and the inclusion of CSOs in SSR processes Nigeria, Mali, Cameroon and Wider ECOWAS-ECCAS Region
This baseline study was conducted by the African Security Sector Network (ASSN) team for the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Peace and Security Competence Centre (FES PSCC) as part of the project "Security for All", which is co-financed by the European Union.
This study intends to be a gap analysis audit and an overview on SSG/R processes in targeted countries (Nigeria, Mali and Cameroun) and the wider ECOWAS region.
The aim of the study is to identify gaps and the causes of the weak involvement of civil society in the public oversight of the security sector so that project activities in all work packages can be specifically tailored and targeted to encourage greater participation of civil society organisations in these reform processes in West and Central Africa.

By 2030, more than half of the world’s extreme poor will live in countries characterized by fragility, conflict, and violence (FCV). The global fragility landscape has worsened significantly: There are now more violent conflicts globally than at any time in the past 30 years, and the world is also facing the largest forced displacement crisis ever recorded.
Rising inequality, lack of opportunity, discrimination, and exclusion are fueling grievances and perceptions of injustice. Climate change, demographic change, migration, digital transformation, illicit financial flows, and violent extremism are often interconnected, with effects that transcend borders. These factors can increase vulnerability to shocks and crises and create regional spillovers.
The objective of the FCV Strategy is to enhance the World Bank Group’s effectiveness to support countries in addressing the drivers and impacts of FCV and strengthening their resilience, especially for the most vulnerable and marginalized populations.
It will be impossible to achieve the World Bank’s twin goals or to meet the Sustainable Development Goals without tackling fragility, conflict, and violence. This strategy is among the WBG’s contributions to the collective global effort to tackle FCV, and it has greatly benefitted from extensive global consultations held throughout the strategy development process.

What’s new? In Burkina Faso, violence is intensifying as a result of a multifaceted rural crisis. Armed groups are proliferating, including bandits, jihadists and self-defence movements. In 2019, Burkina Faso suffered more jihadist attacks than any other Sahelian country.
Why does it matter? The country is locked in a perilous downward spiral. Jihadists are gaining ground by exploiting rural communities’ frustrations. In turn, the government’s largely military response often entails abuses by security forces and self-defence groups that fuel local, community-based violence that provides a fertile recruiting ground for diverse armed groups.
What should be done? The government should limit both its use of force and the role of self-defence groups in its counter-insurgency efforts, and develop a more integrated approach to security. In the longer term, resolving land disputes that often drive local conflicts is a priority in tackling the crisis in the Burkina countryside.
Le programme indicatif national 2014-2020 détaille les secteurs prioritaires de la coopération de l'UE avec le Burkina Faso dans le cadre du 11e Fonds européen de développement. La coopération de l’UE avec le Burkina Faso est mise en oeuvre principalement dans le cadre d’un Programme Indicatif National (PIN) pluriannuel (2014-2020), financé par le Fonds Européen de Développement (FED). L’enveloppe du PIN est complétée par d’autres outils financiers à travers le Fonds Fiduciaire d’Urgence pour l’Afrique (FFU), les lignes thématiques, le Programme Indicatif Régional (PIR) et de l’aide d’urgence à travers le Bureau de l’Aide humanitaire de la Commission européenne (ECHO). Ces actions sont mises en oeuvre conjointement avec les autorités du pays, à travers un dialogue politique et technique constant.
