Chain for Change


In 2012 we adopted a new strategy and expanded our remit from revenue transparency to all steps of the value chain, because if citizens are to benefit from their natural resources then transparency and accountability are required throughout the whole process.

This value chain was created in consultation with our members, both via online means and in-person at a range of events.

Twelve key questions to ask over the lifetime of an extractive project.

What are our natural resources?

What is the natural resource framework?

To extract or not to extract?

How to ensure the best possible deal?

How to monitor the project?

What payments are companies making?

Did the money reach the state coffers?

Where should the money go?

Did the money get there?

Was it worth it?

Always Assess

When the dust settles
