Panel discussion: the potential of transparency initiatives to drive change

Tuesday 06.09.2020 from 1pm-2pm (GMT+1)

How can civil society and communities affected by the oil and gas industry make use of transparency initiatives to enact changes on the ground in the Niger Delta?


Recent years have seen major international developments in revenue transparency in the extractive sector, from improvements to the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) and new Payment to Government Disclosures (PtG). A major question for civil society, is how we now make best use of these to support communities to bring about positive change on the ground. This grounded panel discussion explores how civil society organisations and local communities in the Niger Delta can draw on these transparency initiatives to help deliver increased accountability for the spending of oil revenue in Nigeria.
