Oxfam's oil, gas, and mining program

Oxfam advocates just government policies and corporate practices in the oil, gas, and mining industries, and supports the right of communities to participate meaningfully in decisions about the use of natural resources.

It's a tragic paradox: Countries rich in natural resources often suffer from extreme poverty. Resources like oil, natural gas, and gold should help reduce poverty and promote economic development. Yet large-scale oil, gas, and mining projects frequently contribute to pollution, displacement, and conflict—violating the rights of people and impoverishing communities. Oxfam advocates just government policies and corporate practices in the oil, gas, and mining industries, and supports the right of communities to participate meaningfully in decisions about the use of natural resources.
