A forgotten people on a not so forgotten land: Travails of the Turkana living with oil on their land

The hubbub cannot…See More

New Discussion Paper on Sub-National Payments in Kenya's Oil Sector

This paper aims to give an overview of revenue benefit sharing in the context of Kenya’s oil development in Turkana. It outlines the importance of revenue sharing; what the different proposed formulas may mean with respect to the cash value of transfers to sub-national levels; assesses absorptive capacity of Turkana county as this has been put forward as justifying the proposed revenue sharing formula as contained in the current Bill and concludes with recommendations for both national and…See More

"Well said, USA's withdrawal from EITI has collateral damages to  resource rich African countries like Zimbabwe which are yet to join EITI.  USA, as a global power, should be exemplary on governance of extractives"
