Extractive Industry Case Studies
ANSA-EAP and Revenue Watch Institute (RWI) embarked on the project, Mainstreaming Social Accountability in Extractive Industry. The project drew inspiration from initiatives where citizens and governments engage each other resulting in reforms in education, infrastructure monitoring, and other sectors. The potential for such social accountability tools to be useful in EI lent itself for experimenting and piloting, albeit in a sector that is particularly challenged with polarization in terms of its given or known impacts and the opposing views and responses of a wide range of stakeholders.
Community Scorecards (CSC) were piloted as a tool for promoting social accountability (SAc) in the Extractive Industry (EI). In addition to gathering partners in a sit-down training sessions, they were accompanied and mentored through the process of applying CSC in their respective contexts and on the link in the value chain their respective organizations have significant presence.
These case studies in the 4 focus countries – Cambodia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Timor Leste reflects the preliminary gains in understanding, applying and promoting social accountability in areas of the EI value chain.
