Through the Lens of the Citizen Scientists: Protecting Maritime Ecosystems

This case study documents the power of citizen engagement for generating knowledge and action on environmental protection.

Oxfam supports the rights of communities to know about oil, gas, and mining projects, and to decide if they want these projects. Oxfam also helps track the revenues paid by companies to governments so that more of that money will be spent fighting poverty. Today Oxfam works to find just solutions to oil, gas, and mining issues in approximately 30 countries. This case study is part of a knowledge and learning series focused on Oxfam and partners’ work influencing the oil, gas, and mining activities in selected countries. It documents the power of citizen engagement for generating knowledge and action on environmental protection; with Oxfam’s support, citizen’s scientist clubs are monitoring the environmental health of their communities in Ghana’s Western coastal areas and contributing to broader policy reform.
