Oxfam America

For A Program To Support Citizen Engagement In Extractive Industries And Budget Processes In Senegal

Oxfam America works closely with local civil society organizations to promote transparency of government revenues and spending and to increase public participation in decisions about how public resources are allocated and spent. In the last two years, Oxfam provided detailed information on the legal and fiduciary obligations of extractive companies to citizens in three regions of Senegal and facilitated citizen monitoring of company activities in those regions. This grant will enable Oxfam to consolidate the work in the three regions, expand to two more regions, and build the capacity of citizens in the target communities to participate in decisions about the allocation and use of extractive revenues.
