Oxfam America

For A Project To Defend And Advance Mandatory Oil And Mineral Payment Transparency

Overview
Oxfam America provides legal, technical, and campaign leadership in the defense and implementation of Section 1504 of the Dodd-Frank Act, the oil and mining payment disclosure law in the U.S. Following the recent voiding of the rules implementing this law, Oxfam America started a new initiative to ensure that the Securities and Exchange Commission implements rules in line with congressional intent and in harmony with similar rules in other jurisdictions, notably Canada, the European Union, and the United Kingdom. This grant will enable Oxfam America to conduct relevant research and employ legal and regulatory interventions to defend and advocate for strong and harmonized rules.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Power and Money program  
Oxfam America’s Power and Money program promotes government and corporate transparency and creates opportunities for citizens to participate in decisions about how public revenues are generated, allocated, and spent. Oxfam advocates at the international level for stronger governance and transparency norms and works with local partners at national and subnational levels to promote effective implementation of those norms. During this grant period, Oxfam will intensify efforts to protect civic space and foster greater participation of women and minority groups in fiscal matters.
for strengthening women's participation in social accountability in the extractive sectors  
Oxfam America will continue to strengthen the capacity of civil society organizations to incorporate women’s rights in the accountability agendas related to extractive industries. It will also focus on demanding greater accountability for the budgeting and use of mining revenues and government investments in programs and services that are responsive to women’s needs. Oxfam will document the gender impact of extractive industries to inform advocacy agendas at the local, regional, and global level, ensuring women’s rights organizations participate in decision making about extractive industries transparency. Oxfam America will convene a global learning event to share lessons with key stakeholders, including other international organizations, in-country partners, and global norm-setting platforms.
