The Extractives Baraza (EB) held its first Quarterly Fireside Chat on 12th April 2017 at Strathmore University, Nairobi, Kenya. The forum saw a convergence of stakeholders in the extractives industry with representatives from the government, civil society organizations, extractives companies, law firms and academic institutions.
The discussions drew positive feedback from participants who felt the forum was timely, Impartial and critical in establishing a consensus on contentious issues in the extractives industry. Based on the foregoing, disclosure should be keenly considered during negotiations and drafting of the contracts. The EB was encouraged to keep on having similar session towards achieving consensus building and enhancing governance in the extractives sector in Kenya.
