To end natural resource-related conflict and corruption and associated environmental and human rights abuses. Global Witness envisions a world where natural resources are managed transparently and sustainably and to the benefit of all citizens.
Global Witness' campaigning work has three target groups. Firstly, policy makers and those that influence them, both at an international level, as well as in case-specific developed and developing countries. We target journalists, media outlets and the general public as a means of reaching these targets. Secondly, civil society groups in developing countries where we have a long-term presence. Thirdly, private sector players (individuals and institutional associations) in the specific sectors on which our campaigning is focusing.
