Local Transparency and Cooperation Initiative

EFCA started in 2012 a program with dual objectives to improve cooperation and accountability between citizens and local government in public services delivery, and to increase transparency, and understanding in the extractive industry. During the initial 11 months, under objective 1, EFCA partner LARC provided legal assistance on rights to access public services including over 700 grassroots legal consultations to local citizens, and right-based awareness raising training to over 200 citizens. Under objective 2, EFCA partner research firm Oxus International completed a field-based assessment report on mining perceptions and company-community relationships across the country. EFCA and its partners used findings of the assessment report to select focus communities (http://www.ef-ca.org/2013/05/ltci-report/). EFCA and its partner Tree of Life established 6 public reception centres to disseminate objective information on mining and environmental protection and conducted several public hearings.
