The effects of the financial crisis on giving are only just beginning to be felt. Over the next few issues, Alliance will offer a series of snapshots from contributors in different regions, showing what impact the crisis is having on philanthropy and civil society there.

In India, though it’s business as usual so far for CSR, it’s likely that its practice will become more tightly focused. Meanwhile, in Africa, shrinking resources point to the need to concentrate on developing self-sustaining CSOs. In the Arab region, by contrast, massive commitments for reconstruction in Gaza are defying all the trends.
