Overview

This event will disseminate the lessons from the project 'Promoting Democratic Management of Africa's Oil Wealth' - a joint regional project between Chatham House, Catholic Relief Services and Human Rights Watch. Funded by the Ford Foundation, the project addresses oil revenue transparency and accountability in several countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Its aim is to inform the international public debate on the extractives industry - primarily oil revenue management in Africa - and to help citizens in resource-rich states gain an understanding of the amount and use of oil revenues so that they can hold their governments accountable.
