From Contract Transparency to Meaningful Public Monitoring in Mining Sector
PWYP Indonesia aims to promote mining contract and license transparency in West Nusa Tenggara Province, one of the places where most copper in Indonesia is mined. Licensing, particularly in mining sector, is the most corruption-prone area. Licensing systems don't give much room for public participation. This combination has hindered public to monitor mining to hold the government accountable.
PWYP Indonesia aims to encourage mining contract and license disclosure and improve public participation, especially by women and young people, in monitoring mining operation at the province. To do so, PWYP Indonesia will assist local governments to disclose the mining contract and license. PWYP Indonesia also facilitates capacity building of local communities to understand the mining related data and the role of contracts and license documents for community monitoring.
