Development of a Pro-Poor Oil and Gas Policy

In the process of developing the pro-poor oil and gas advocacy policy, CEHRD programme team with support from CORDAID had consultations in 17 communities in Gokana local government area, which includes: Kporghor in Tai local government, and Kono in Khana local government area. A conference was held to validate the policy draft. The policy was envisioned to strengthen community pact in GMoU, to develop a framework for legislative engagement by host communities, to set in motion strategies to reconcile multiple partners through advocacy, nonviolent campaigns and capacity building and to obtain signatures of community leaders and representatives for the purpose of legislative engagement through advocacy on the impact and consequence of oil spills and gas flaring in the zone.
