Maximising our resources

PWYP makes the most of our limited resources. By reflecting constantly on the best ways to diversify, use, optimise and channel our funds, we can adapt when necessary, to remain lean and effective in all we do – including supporting our members to deliver on our global strategy.

Funding and spending

The PWYP Secretariat receives funding from donors who support our mission, vision and global goals. To preserve our independence, PWYP does not accept funding from oil, gas or mining companies. We are open and accountable about our governance, funding sources and spending – and we support PWYP members and coalitions in demonstrating the same high standards.

National coalitions are responsible for their own fundraising, with support from the Secretariat through grants for key projects to help achieve our overall strategy. To be eligible for support from the Secretariat, member organisations must meet PWYP’s strict governance and accountability criteria. The Secretariat provides ongoing support in grant management and project implementation, to ensure funds are used optimally to deliver our mission of making oil, gas and mineral governance open, accountable, sustainable, equitable and responsive to all people.


Our annual report 2019

2019 was a landmark year for the PWYP movement. It with the adoption of our Vision 2025 strategy at the PWYP Global Assembly in Senegal, where 250 members and partners joined together to share experiences, generate ideas and strengthen our network. And we ended it – after seven regional consultations, involving over 200 members – with a clear, inspiring operational plan to implement Vision 2025.
