The International Senior Lawyers Project (ISLP) works with developing countries and civil society organizations in sub-Saharan Africa to improve the management of oil, gas, and mineral resources, and to ensure greater transparency in the revenues from those resources. By providing highly experienced lawyers and coordinating pro bono support from global law firms, ISLP helps countries to strengthen their legal, regulatory, and enforcement frameworks for natural resources management. With this grant, ISLP would be able to deepen and expand their advisory services and capacity building support in sub-Saharan Africa.
