Regional Workshop on Civic Space for NGOs Working in East Africa’s Oil and Gas Sector

Regional Workshop on Civic Space for NGOs Working in East Africa’s Oil and Gas Sector

The global shrinking civic space possess a big threat to Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) working in the oil and gas sector. Our work in the oil sector has and continuous to face challenges due to unfair laws and controls that bar freedom of speech, expression and assembly. 

The purpose of this two (2) day international conference is therefore to foster collaboration and networking amongst Civil Society Organizations working in East Africa’s budding oil and gas sector, in light of the shrinking civic space. It is therefore impetrative for CSOs to come together to discuss the dynamics of repressive policies and practices impacting CSOs working in the extractives sector and forge partnerships to mitigate these impacts that are curtailing CSOs work.
