Working through the Oxfam West Africa Regional Platform, this grant will support efforts to identify barriers and pathways to gender equity in extractive industry governance, and build the capacity of women’s rights organizations and civil society groups to implement more gender-aware extractive industry governance.

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.

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.
