Strengthen Capacity of Women for their Participation in Oil and Gas Management in Buliisa District

With support from Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI), BIRUDO has this July/August 2017 has been  focusing exclusively on strengthening capacity of women participation in oil and gas development through informing women of their land rights, and on documenting how women have been affected by land transactions related to the construction of oil infrastructure.  The program is focused on the five villages closest to the area in which the Central Processing Facility (CPF) is planned, namely Kisomere, Kasenyi, Uduuk II, Kibambura, and Kirama. BIRUDO will then take forward the women’s concerns and complaints to both sub-county representatives, and the district administration.
