As the Team Lead, I'm responsible for coordinating BudgIT's Extractives Advocacy efforts which includes promoting Fiscal Transparency across the Extractives Value Chain, promoting sustainable local content policies and for promoting development of underserved communities in resource-rich states.
I also coordinate BudgIT's strategy of providing proactive policy advisory to relevant government agencies to avoid scenarios that could cause leakages/loss of government revenue (e.g. conflicts, corruption, barriers to formalization, faulty policies, legal gaps/loopholes etc) from Extractives activities that should ordinarily be used for development. Lastly, I ensure we keep track of remediation status of key issues in Oil, Gas & Minerals sectors and provide report on progress being made to citizens and raise awareness about new issues in the Extractives sector as they occur.
Areas of interest
gold, oil and natural gas, csr, governance and anti-corruption, contract and licensing, monitoring revenue collection, redistribution and sustainable development
