“People cannot find answers to their questions, including why their well-being is so poor when god has given so much resource wealth to this country.” (Quote from Michael, PWYP member in Tajikistan)
It is home to the world’s tallest flagpole, has a capital named after a day of the week and – it’s been rumoured – is home place to the infamous, and abominable, snowman.
The global push for transparency just got bigger, as the Canadian government announced it would implement mandatory disclosure legislation by 1 April, 2015. These reporting standards would oblige extractive companies listed in Canada to publish payments above C$100,000 on a project-by-project basis. These rules are in harmony with transparency legislation adopted in the EU, US and Norway.
The artistic community in Niger has joined the civil society-led campaign to urge the Nigerien government and nuclear group AREVA to reach a new agreement that takes Niger’s interests into account.
The official announcement was made on 6 February 2014 at a meeting organised by ROTAB (PWYP-Niger) and other civil-society organisations on Place de la Concertation in front of Niger’s parliament building.
PWYP Zimbabwe recently issued a statement calling on the media to investigate the pay and benefits of top executives at two of the states’ mining institutions – the Zimbabwe Mining Development Corporation (ZMDC) and the Minerals Marketing Corporation of Zimbabwe (MMCZ). (ZMDC is responsible for all government mining ventures and owns 50% of the shares in all Marange diamond companies.)
Our vision is for a world where all citizens benefit from their natural resources. As part of this we have campaigned for companies to publish what they pay – so that citizens can follow the money and hold their government to account.
But a crucial part in ensuring that citizens benefit from their natural resources means ensuring that companies are paying the right amount of tax and that governments are properly collecting this tax.
Take thirty seconds of your time to sign this petition to help Niger get a fair deal for its resources.
2013 was a busy year for campaigners in Iraq. The Iraqi Transparency Alliance for Extractive Industries (ITAEI), PWYP’s affiliated coalition, shed light on some crucial aspects of Iraq’s natural resources. They succeeded in having Iraq’s internal consumption of oil and Iraq’s volumes of exported oils included in the EITI report published last December, which covers data from 2011. This data will give citizens a clearer picture of what the government really earns from Iraq’s oil.
