Project on Organizing, Development, Education, and Research

For General Operating Support

The Project on Organizing, Development, Education and Research (PODER) is an organization that seeks to increase corporate accountability in Mexico and throughout Latin America. Transparency in the extractives sector is a primary focus. This grant would bolster PODER’s work to increase public awareness of government concessions for mining and renewable resource initiatives, improve the evidence about the public revenue generated or lost in extractive industry contracts, and increase the capacity of citizens and community organizations to use publicly available information to advocate for more transparent government processes to authorize mining concessions.

for a project on increasing extractive industry transparency in Mexico  
This grant would enable the Project on Organizing, Development, Education, and Research (PODER) to use public information to document the extent to which tax revenue is lost in Mexico due to poorly managed mining contracts. In addition, the project will work to identify the real ownership of the largest private companies working with natural resources in Mexico. This data will then be collated and curated by PODER and an external editorial committee of experts and presented in a public website.
