Grants to this Grantee
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.
for an Oxfam South Africa program to advance transparency and participation in extractive industries  
Oxfam America will provide funding to Oxfam South Africa (OZA) to address natural resource governance challenges in southern Africa. With this support, OZA will embark on community mobilization and education to facilitate effective implementation of policies designed to deepen corporate and government responsiveness and accountability in the extractives sector. OZA will also mobilize civil society groups and communities to advocate for the formalization of artisanal mining and to participate actively in setting the terms of engagement in extractive processes including environmental impact assessments, social labor planning, and corporate social responsibility.
