Cordaid’s Strategic Partnership on lobby & Advocacy (SPLA) programme conducted a national workshop on extractives, conflict and fragility from 28 to 29 August 2019. Its participants included civil society organizations (CSOs) and the workshop was held at Cordaid’s Enterprise Academy. This workshop focused on finding the linkages between extractives, conflict and fragility that are relevant to civil society organizations and partners operating in the extractives sector. The workshop participants discussed the main challenges, issues and problems associated with conflict and fragility and brainstormed advocacy efforts including the formulation of recommendations to be shared with national and international policymakers. The workshop suggested to use the recommended ideas as input for the 2020 strategic action plan and share them with politicians and all involved actors to help build a better social contract. The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs finances the SPLA project, which includes four trajectories and is implemented in close collaboration with the Embassy of the Netherlands in Kabul. The extractives trajectory of the SPLA aims to strengthen civil society engagement towards extractives and to restore the social contract in fragile states.
