Oxfam's Work on Extractive Industries

Oil, gas, and mining projects generate billions of dollars in the developing world, yet very little of this wealth benefits the communities where these resources are found. These communities often suffer from displacement, pollution, and a lack of meaningful voice in decisions about whether or not to extract. Oxfam has worked for more than 15 years to change this. Today we work with partners in more than 30 countries to enable people to effectively defend their rights to participate in decisions about natural resources and unlock resource revenues for development that meets their needs.
