What is the programme goal?

With TRACE, we seek to:

  • Increase participants and their organisations possibility and skills to identify if their country is exposed to revenue and tax leakages, and present and discuss possible transparency mechanism and measures that can be implemented (unilaterally or internationally) to stop such leakage.
  • Strengthen participating organisations’ national, regional and global networks.
  • Contribute to enhancing participating organisations’ strategizing of their working methods for engaging and awareness raising and lobbying activities on the issues.

On a higher level, the aim is that citizens of oil, gas and mineral rich countries are able to mobilize their own resources for development and that value creation from the extractive industries is translated into a common good.
