We are the only global movement working to ensure that revenues from oil, gas and mining are used to drive development. With more than 1000 member organisations and 51 national coalitions, our strength lies in our ability to coordinate action nationally and globally, maximising our collective impact, so everyone benefits from their natural resources – today and tomorrow.

Vision 2025 – a people-centred agenda for the extractive sector

Our Vision 2025 strategy lays out the roadmap towards a world where everyone benefits from their natural resources. We’ll be pushing for governments to regulate natural resource extraction in an open and accountable way, for companies to operate within an effective governance framework, and for a civil society with the skills and freedom to drive natural resource extraction that benefits all. The PWYP Secretariat’s Operational Plan 2020-2022 defines how its work will support the implementation of the strategy Vision 2025.
