Job Opening: Policy Advisor

Publish What You Pay – US (PWYP-US) is the US chapter of a global coalition calling for a more transparent and accountable extractives sector so that oil, gas and mining revenues improve the lives of people in resource-rich countries. Oil, gas, and mining projects generate billions of dollars in the developing world, yet very little of this wealth benefits the communities where these resources are found. PWYP-US advocates for transparency initiatives that shine a light on the financial flows between companies and governments so that citizens have the information they need to hold their governments accountable.

PWYP-US has 40 NGO members and is governed by a steering committee led by Global Witness, ONE, Oxfam America, and PWYP-International. PWYP-US is a project of the Fund for Constitutional Government. The global PWYP network spans 41 countries, primarily in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
