Cambodia,

Oil, gas and mining are new to this nation. Since, Chevron have started its exploration stage in downstream of Cambodia's sea during 1990s, and have just conducted it's EIA report for inter-ministry consultation. To this, there are many challenges regrading lacking of petroleum legal framework, poor public consultation with concerned communities also civil society organisation, and the significant challenges for both government and NGOs are the limitation of human resource to work/deal with expertise petroleum companies such Chevron, CNOOC, JOGMEC..

As Cambodian citizen, and also a member of coalition in Cambodia which work closely with community, government and also companies to demanding and ensuring accountability, transparency and also equal/fairness benefit sharing amongst those stakeholders. I would strongly commit to have a chance to gain a scholarship to upgraded and acknowledge more about the field of petroleum development in order to help and contribute to Cambodia's development too. So, i would ask each GOXI's member for your recommendation and suggestion on how to find and get a scholarship.

Working together toward the clean and fair world!

Thanks for your high consideration.

This Thursday, July 14 from 12-2pm (Washington, DC time) Oxfam America and the World Bank Institute are co-sponsoring the event Shining a Light on Petroleum Agreements – Disclosure and Monitoring in Action.

This event will focus on new momentum for the disclosure of extractive industry contracts between companies and host governments. Disclosure, though, is only a first step. As a case study, they will look at the release of petroleum agreements in Ghana, how civil society groups are using this new information and what kinds of technical support outside groups can provide to help analyze and monitor these agreements.

The event will be available via webcast on the following link: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/shining-a-light-on-petroleum-agreements

 

The event will have the participation of:

· Mohammed Amin Adam, Convener – Civil Society Platform on Oil and Gas, Ghana
· Lance Crist – Global Head, Oil and Gas, IFC
· Carlos Ramos-Mrosovsky, Associate, Baker Hostetler, New York
· Michael Jarvis – Team Leader - Governance for Extractive Industries, World Bank Institute
· Clive Armstrong – Senior Economist, IFC
· Stephen T. Olson, Associate, Baker Hostetler, New York / Houston
 Moderator: Ian Gary, Senior Policy Manager – Extractive Industries, Oxfam America

 

GOXI will be reporting on the event.

We are in the midst of launching a similar contract monitoring process in East Africa, including focus on mining in Tanzania and Zambia and forthcoming oil production in Uganda.  Lots of debate at the kick off meeting in Kampala.  We will share overviews of the draft action plans once available.

@Ahmed - We hope to get some of the participants in Liberia to give feedback on their experience so hopefully you'll have your answer soon.
Comment by Ahmed Finoh on December 1, 2010 at 21:30
Is this group from the media world?
I would expect so since building capacity in governmental entities to monitoring contracts implementation would require legislative instruments to empower civil servants to regulate the industry. Monitoring any ( powerful) industry can be a tricky business. Only a vibrant press has some leverage in that area to make meaningful impacts.
Waiting to see what emerges out of this conference in terms of actionable suggestions. Good luck to all the participants and safe stay and returns to your home countries.
