sharing in governance of extractive industries
This workshop, on civil society contract monitoring in the mining sector, has been organised by the Revenue Watch Institute and the World Bank Institute, in partnership with the Cameroonian NGO RELUFA (Réseau de Lutte contre la Faim). The workshop has convened 20 participants from civil society organisations and the media in Burkina Faso, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Niger, Guinea and Cameroon.
It has four main aims:
to build an understanding of the arguments and evidence in favour of contract transparency.
To strengthen the capacity to analyse and understand mining contracts, and to translate key obligations into ordinary language.
to strengthen the capacity to advocate for contract transparency, contract monitoring and accountability for failures to meet obligations.
To strengthen the capacity to monitor mining contracts and to communicate the results of monitoring, sharing a range of tools, methods and lessons learned from each others' countries and from international experience.
I'll be blogging from the workshop later in the week!
