COALITION
< All members

PWYP Ghana brings together 30 civil society organisations focused on advocacy to promote transparent oil exploration and revenue management. The coalition participates in the national EITI multi-stakeholder group and has worked on expanding opportunities for civil society to participate in decision making around the oil, gas and mining sectors. It has also worked on petroleum revenue tracking and expenditure. PWYP Ghana has undertaken a gender scan of the coalition and is exploring opportunities to ensure more meaningful participation of, and representation by, women in the coalition’s programmes and institutional structure, as well a greater engagement with women’s rights organisations. The coalition is building its capacity to analyse company beneficial ownership registers in order to monitor and highlight corruption risks related to the sector.
