Cambodia has yet to see how the recent discovery of offshore oil or the rapid growth of large-scale mining will benefit the country. Oxfam America remains committed to ensuring that the government, civil society and the private sectors are working together for a transparent and accountable process in all of the extractive industries. Oxfam supports the communities’ right to know how these projects will affect their lands and livelihoods – environmentally, socially, and economically. Citizens need access to contracts and revenue information in order to hold governments accountable for how resource revenues are used and ensure that the affected community will benefit from this industry.
