Extract-A-Fact is a project of Publish What You Pay - United States and is born out of our commitment to empower citizens, activists and journalists to harness oil, gas, and mining data and use it as a tool to demand accountability from governments and extractive companies.
Riding on the wave of payment data that has become available, Extract-A-Fact will seek to answer questions like:
We will provide training modules detailing useful and creative ways to find, analyze, and visualize extractives data, as well as blog posts from PWYP-US and our partners as we dig deeper into oil, gas, and mining sector data to answer questions critical to communities impacted by natural resources.
Extract-A-Fact also works in partnership with Publish What You Pay International's Data Extractors Program, an initiative supported by the Omidyar Network, to use the data obtained through mandatory disclosure laws in a meaningful way.
