The World Bank Institute’s (WBI) Governance for Extractive Industries seeks to build collective capacity to monitor oil, gas and mining agreements. The program brings together key actors from the private sector, government, media and civil society to improve contract monitoring in target countries.

Recent steps of the program have been undertaken in Ghana including:

  • The public release of petroleum contracts
  • Inclusion of the monitoring of procurement and contract by the Public Accounts Committees and Auditors General of West Africa
  • Evaluations of contracts by Ghana’s Auditor General
  • A new pilot interactive online map of Extractive activities in Ghana.
  • An interactive online platform for practitioners that are actively supporting governance of the extractive industries. This platform is called the GOXI platform.
