PWYP Malawi advocates for the transparent and accountable use of money the government receives from companies that extract the country’s natural resources. The coalition operates under the Natural Resources Justice Network’s broader mandate of ensuring resources are managed for sustainable and equitable development. In 2017, members elected a new steering committee and host organisation. The committee’s new chair and vice-chair are Church and Society of the Livingstonia Synod and Oxfam Malawi. Other members of the steering committee are the Institute for Policy Interaction, Ufulu Wathu and the Centre for Environmental Policy and Advocacy (which also hosts PWYP Malawi).
