Extractives Advocacy

FECCLAHA participating in the Alternative Mining Indaba (AMI) in Capetown, South Africa with sister Organization-

Fellowship of Christian Councils in Southern Africa (FOCCISA)

The Greater Eastern Africa region has witnessed increased exploration and discovery of oil and gas resources. Most of the countries in the region lack pro-people policies and laws to govern the extractive industries.

The protection of delicate ecosystems and the environment is also not assured in the rush to benefit from new-found resources. In order to design and undertake high level advocacy on natural resource governance and management, FECCLAHA will facilitate a regional consultation that will examine the obtaining situation in the region and discuss various strategies to be used in the ecumenical advocacy for effective natural resource governance and management.
