Overview
Oxfam America will provide funding to Oxfam South Africa (OZA), the first African affiliate in the global Oxfam confederation, to address governance challenges in the extractives sector in southern Africa. With this support, OZA will strengthen citizens’ capacity to hold governments and companies in the region accountable for just, transparent, and responsive policies on natural resource extraction. OZA will also advance the principle of free, prior, and informed consent by mobilizing civil society groups and communities to actively participate in setting the terms of engagement in extractive processes including environmental impact assessments, social labor planning, and corporate social responsibility.
