Zimbabwe

COALITION
< All members

PWYP Zimbabwe was founded in 2011 around the need to promote and protect the political, economic, social, environmental and cultural rights of communities affected by extraction. The coalition has focused much of its efforts on improving mining legislation, such as the proposed Diamond Revenue Bill, the Mines and Minerals Amendment Bill, the mineral policy and the constitutional reform process. It also advocates for reform of existing laws that hinder transparency and public participation, such as the Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act and the Public Order and Security Act.

PWYP Zimbabwe helped bring about the Zimbabwe Mining Revenue Transparency Initiative, in which it plays an important role. Although the initiative is similar to the EITI, the coalition continues to engage the government over joining the EITI. It also seeks to broaden its membership and build the capacity of civil society, the media and community activists to demand transparency in the extractive sector.
