PWYP Angola Strategy Meeting


Issue: Advocacy, Training

Country: Angola


With support from RWI, several participants from Africa attended a strategy meeting of Angola's Publish What You Pay Angola coalition. The goal of the workshop was to bolster the transparency campaign in Angola, share best practice from other PWYP national coalitions, and better coordinate donor contribution and support.

The Angolan government has systemically mismanaged the nation's substantial oil revenues over several decades and, despite its rhetoric, has yet to demonstrate a meaningful commitment to transparency reforms. Billions of dollars in oil revenues remain unaccounted for in Angola. Independent oversight is a central element of any transparent public accounting system, and local civil society organizations must play an important role by advocating for better extractive industry revenue management.
