Issue: Civil Society

Country: Indonesia

Organization: Bojonegoro Institute


The Bojonegoro district is one of the main oil-producing regions in East Java. Oil production in Bojonegoro is expected to increase significantly over the next few years as extractive revenues increase. However many factors (such as corruption, ineffective budgeting practices, revenue volatility, lack of government capacity to effectively manage extractive revenues and elaborate development plans) make it difficult for the public to benefit from the extractive operations in their regions. The proposed project plans to help adopt a comprehensive transparency and monitoring mechanism to address existing EI-related problems in the Bojonegoro district.

• To adopt a comprehensive transparency and monitoring mechanism to address existing EI problems in the Bojonegoro district

• To build the capacity of local oversight bodies in Bojonegoro (CSOs, local communities) to help them effectively monitor the EI sector
