Event Description

The objectives of the discussion are:

1. To interrogate the scope of confidentiality clauses, their legality, enforcement and effect of the same in the managing of oil gas and mineral resources


2. To interrogate different stakeholder perspectives on confidentiality clauses in oil, gas and mining contracts vis-à-vis the right to access of information


3. To bridge the gap between these different perspectives on what information in extractive contracts may legitimately and reasonably be kept confidential and what information should be made public.


4. To promote a serious conversation among industry, governments (host and home), investors, banks and civil society organizations about disclosure and confidentiality in extractive contracts so as to promote good governance of our natural resources.

The event is a follow up of the fireside chat discussions that were so enriching especially by comparing confidentiality clauses across different jurisdictions. It is based on the outcome of this discussions that we thought it important to scale up the discussions to a regional level to get views from a wide range of stakeholders in Africa on the same topic.
