Extractive Industries and Civic Space

Outcome Paper: Interactive Discussion Series

MARCH 2022

In January and February 2022, ICNL worked with NRGI, PWYP, Oxfam USA, and the Institute of Development Studies to convene a diverse group of partners from civil society, academia, and multilateral institutions to explore strategies and approaches for promoting natural resource governance (NRG) and expanding civic space in politically hostile environments. The meetings focused on rethinking goals and approaches to advancing NRG in restricted environments, addressing new strategies and approaches to defending and expanding civic space for NRG activists, and implications for just energy transitions.
