KCSPOG officially joined PWYP Kenya in November 2018. KCSPOG is a 17-member civil society organisation coalition whose primary focus is on coordinating members’ work on upstream and midstream oil and gas issues. The Platform’s members work on various thematic areas ranging from land, environment, extractives revenue management and good governance.
KCSPOG members work closely on the development of laws and policies on oil and gas; engaging communities affected by exploration activities, upstream developments and construction of midstream infrastructure; as well as conduct research to inform policies and the citizenry on extractives issues such as revenue management.
Publish What You Pay and UN Women are working together to integrate gender perspectives into natural resource governance, so that when we say we want all citizens to benefit from their resources, we really mean all citizens. To this end, we created a value chain that shows how you can approach gender at every step in the extractive process.
In parallel with globally recognised human right frameworks, we believe that women’s participation should be increased at every level and in every activity along the extractive value chain, in government, civil society and the private sector.
Women’s leadership and participation should be promoted in all discussions within the extractive industries sector. Women are actors, not victims, and it is time they had a better way to engage with natural resources.
