Anti
Corruption

West Africa is blessed with an immense array of mineral, oil and gas wealth. Sadly, the “resource curse” afflicting the region has meant that much of this fortune lands in the hands of too few. Natural resources can provide an economic mainstay in many countries, however corruption and lack of accountability constitute major challenges in translating these resource flows into equitably distributed gains for the majority of citizens. OSIWA has strategic alliances with international partners such as Transparency International, Publish What You Pay and the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative and local affiliates, including the Centre for Public Interest Law in Ghana, the Rice and Rights Foundation in Liberia and BudgIT in Nigeria. Our work in this domain focuses on increasing the effectiveness of natural resource management frameworks, supporting alternate (and creative) means for anti-corruption enforcement and enhancing citizens’ demands for accountability.
