Hi Nana, pleasure is mine in accepting the request. Im Ngozi from Nigeria. at present working on two projects around the Extractives in Nigeria, one is to keep pushing for the passage of the PIB in my country, and the other is promoting the Natural Resource Charter and its 12 percepts...to further enhance resource governance. one of the ways which i engage with this subject matter..is through the social media platforms where i'm trying to get as many likes as possible as well as get people interested with the subject matter.
Hi Nana, It's a pleasure to have this feedback from you with regard to my work in Sierra Leone on the Extractives with respect to Natural Resource Governance. it has been challenging but we are still campaigning for just mining and pushing for Open Contracting with regard to transparency and monitoring with disclosure. You can add me on sype: johndadmomo. Thanks, John
That sounds good, Uganda's Oil and gas policy recognises the important role civil society organisation play in ensuring responsible petroleum development particularly through ensuring accountability.
Apart from research, we need more adovacy, partnership aproach and capacity building.

Hi, I'm really sorry it's taken me so long to reply to your request--I've had an insanely busy couple of months. I joined GOXI in anticipation of a new project that I have been developing and am now starting up--a newsletter on the social, economic and environmental dimensions of Uganda's oil and gas exploration and production. This will be published by ActionAid Uganda and will be aimed at policy and opinion makers: parliamentarians, researchers, civil society, mass media etc. I'm hoping to have a skeletal site up and running in about a month's time, and we're taking on a couple of Ugandan reporters who will be helping me add the meat in the months that follow. Because many of the target audience are not avid web users, we will re-package the best material every two months into a print newsletter. I will let you know the URL when the site goes live; and happy to meet to exchange next time you are through Kampala. My cellphone number here is 0777 723 222. Best, Nick
