A United Civil Society for a Transparent Petroleum Sector
Publish What You Pay (PWYP) has received a grant from the Norwegian Agency for Development and Cooperation (NORAD) to implement three-year projects in three different countries located in Africa and the Middle East: Kenya, Iraq and Lebanon.
Lebanon's project, titled “United Civil Society for a Transparent Petroleum Sector”, opens a window of opportunity for the CSOs seeking an open and accountable sector.
The project aims to establish a capable civil society coalition and enhance its ability to access, understand, and analyze data, and reach out to decision-makers in Lebanon. In addition, engaging academia through forming a university students and professors network is a major aim of the project.
