Supreme Audit Institutions: The Guardians of Resource Governance

Posted on September 19, 2016 at 15:56 0 Comments

They go by different names but share the same higher principles. Most people don't know they exist but there they are, built into every national government, working tirelessly to ensure public resources are collected and spent as they were meant to be. They are supreme audit institutions, and they are the guardians of public financial management and natural resource governance. 

Last week, I had the honor of participating in the …


Blueprint for Prosperity: How South Sudan's new laws hold the key to a transparent and accountable oil sector

Posted on November 29, 2012 at 18:00 0 Comments

With independence on 9 July 2011, the Republic of South Sudan became both the newest and the most oil-dependent country in the world.

South Sudan has been blessed with oil wealth that, if managed responsibly, could provide for the long-term development and prosperity its citizens deserve. There are encouraging signs that the South Sudanese government is committed to ensuring this outcome. Indeed, the country’s emerging legal framework includes wide-ranging public reporting, contract…

Thanks Dana. As a matter of fact I will be in Nairobi between 12th-15th October 2011 for my Pre-Departure Briefing PDB with AusAID. I have been given a Scholarship by the Australian government to pursue a Msc (Minerals & Energy Economics) and will be living around 1st week of January 2012. So if you are in Nairobi mid next month, that cup of coffee or tea could happen. Though with or out the tea or coffee I look forward to sharing my experiences while learning from yours  from now onwards.


As CSOs in Uganda, we are doing our best to contribute to the legislative process in the Oil and gas industry and just last week held 2 capacity building workshops for the CSOs, journalists and Members of Parliament on the proposed Peroleum Resource Law  2010 Bill which was shared for debate by the Ministry of Minerals and Energy Development sometime last year. We had the expert facilitation of Keith Mayers from Richmond Energy U.K in those workshops. We spent the whole of last year sharing this Bill and discussing it with the Local communities in the Albertine Graben and faciliated comments thereafter which were shared with the Ministry.


But ofcourse, as you might be reading in the local, regional and international media, all the little progress we are making on the ground is being hampered by the current standoff between the legislature, CSOs and government about the secrecy surrounding Production Sharing Agreements signed between IOCs and the Government of Uganda whch we insist should be debated, reviewed and harmonised with any new proposed legislation. Plus the ongoing Capital Gains Tax between disputes between Tullow Oil Plc, Heritage and the government of Uganda in the U.K courts and Ugandan courts. I guess this kind of sums up what we are currently involved in Uganda. I would love to hear more about you, your work and how our Organisation and yours can synergize their strength in the Oil and gas industry in the East and Central African region.


Though I would prefer a skype chart- my laptop has no inbuilt webcam though I plan to access one quite soon. my skype I.D is donbb76, but suggest a phone conversation now would be more convenient. You can reach me @ +256 772 512460.

Hi Dana, I am glad to touch base with you. I am particularly interested in your work in Southern Sudan. I have done some consultancies previously in Sudan with the SPLA CJMC- Ceasefire Joint Military Committee-2007 training on conflcit resolution and management where I trained aroudn 26 Senior army officials of the now new government of Southern Sudan and issues of the oil disputes in Abyei and gold revenues from the hot spot of Kordofan in the Numba mountains were serious addressed. I have also travelled to Yei in the South and Yambio in the West. Would love to share a cup of tea next time you are in the region and get first hand information from you about the Oil negotiations between the North and South and proposed new policy and legal framwork.

Hi Dana,


I saw you joined the Parliaments & Extractives group and that you're based in the UK. I work at the World Bank Institute, we focus on contract monitoring in extractives, and have a program on capacity development for parliaments. I recently moved to London. Would you fancy a tea some time to talk about our work? Best, Cindy
