Twenty-three multinational mining, oil & gas companies, industry associations and civil society organisations also joined the multi-stakeholder consultation on 17 November.

Through constructive and continuous engagement, the Policy Dialogue is progressively consolidating a community of knowledge and practice committed to advance work across the substantive work streams as follows:
Work Stream 1 - Shared value creation and local development
Work Stream 2 – Stabilisation funds and revenue spending
Work Stream 3 – Getting better deals
Work Stream 4 – Detecting corruption risks in extractives
