Quarterly Newsletter: Corporate Watch

PDI published quarterly newsletters regularly for almost two years as a part of its Extractive Industries Watch Program. The newsletter/magazine carried articles and reports about the field situation in the oil and gas exploration and production regions of Sindh. The magazine also had articles on the legal framework of the operation of the oil and gas firms and the community rights and environmental laws associated with the exploration and production processes.

The newsletter/ magazine had two parts, one part carrying reports in Sindhi languages while the other part had English language reports. PDI researchers and advocacy activists wrote these reports and articles following their field research and collecting field-based data/information. The articles served extensively for the organization’s community awareness and advocacy purposes. Communities were made aware of their community/environmental rights, and the policymakers were also aware of the flaws in the legal and institutional mechanisms governing the operations of the multinational oil and gas firms.
