Improving Accountability in Extractive Sector Governance

Project completed

To avoid resource curse outcomes in developing countries, including those where Swiss companies operate and where Swiss development agencies are active, greater transparency, accountability and oversight are required. A partnership with the Natural Resource Governance Institute will pursuit this aim by advancing global transparency norms, strengthening accountability actors, and informing policymakers with evidence-based tactics for improving governance in this crucial sector. Particular attention is given to inform and support SDC’s activities in priority countries identified for an increased level of action by the Federal Council on March 26, 2014: Bolivia, Burkina Faso, Mali, one country to be defined in Southern Africa, Afghanistan, and Mongolia.
