Have you encountered a community issue and are not sure of where to report or refer it to for redress? Check out the GRA Community Monitoring Directory for guidance on how and where to report or refer cases that affect people in the extractive communities. 

The directory is a vital resource for anyone who needs to know the right places to report common community cases and will go a long way in easing access to justice and ending impunity.  

The cases highlighted in the Directory were informed by data from our Community-Based Monitors (CBMs), local authorities and the GRA case management system.
