Statistical analysis of the civil society sector in the Republic of Moldova

August 29, 2018

In August, the EU-funded ‘Eastern Partnership Civil Society Facility (EaP CSF) – Regional Actions’ project presented the results of a study on the civil society sector in the Republic of Moldova.

The study is based on a statistical analysis conducted in April–June 2018. The analysis focused on the division between active and dormant organisations, their urban and rural distribution, their areas of work, people engaged in their work and the communities they serve.

The snapshot of the country’s civil society shows that its most popular areas of activity are mobility and people-to-people contacts, with education the most popular topic, and youth and children the most frequent target groups.

The analysis also shows that civil society organisations have limited infrastructure and rely heavily on direct grants. Although four out of five organisations use at least one information and communication technology tool in their daily operations, less than half use such tools to communicate with the communities they represent.

The analysis was implemented at the request of the Delegation of the European Union to Moldova. Using random sampling, 313 civil society organisations (out of the 8,570 registered in Moldova) were identified for the study.

More information on the other findings of the study can be found in an infographic developed by the EaP CSF project team, available here.

The EaP CSF is an EU-funded project working with the six EaP countries to promote the role of civil society actors, by supporting innovations based on an e-learning approach, developing digital solutions to improve the public sector’s transparency and accountability, and strengthening cooperation and networking among civil society and governments throughout the region.
