Looking back at the Global Assembly 2019

The Global Assembly is PWYP’s tri-annual strategic convening of members. It is a unique opportunity for members and partners from around the world to come together to discuss trends in the transparency and accountability movement, strategise around key developments in the extractives sector and learn from each other.

Global Assembly 2019

From power analysis and data use, to safeguarding the environment or protecting activists, participants from 50 countries shared a wide range of experiences, sparking ideas and learning from each other dunr the Global Assembly 2019. We forged deeper relationships and developed our collective agenda for action and impact for the next five years. It was especially significant that 40 per cent of the 250 participants were women. Although still not enough, this is an encouraging sign, given that the extractive sector – and sometimes activism around it – so often fails to include women. It also reflects one of the key tenets of Vision 2025, PWYP’s Global Strategy 2020-2025, which actively promotes gender equity at all levels across the sector.

Developed during an 18-month global conversation in which many assembly participants were involved, Vision 2025 sets out four goals for achieving our vision of a world in which all citizens benefit from their natural resources, today and tomorrow. It aims to make our global movement more Informed, Influential, Heard and Connected. After a highly stimulating day exploring these goals and how best to achieve them, participants formally adopted the strategy, committing to making this vision a reality by 2025.
