TAX JUSTICE; ENVIRONMENT AND CONSERVATIVE OF NATURE
TAX JUSTICE AND PUBLIC FINANCE MANAGEMENT – CISLAC’s pedigree in the Tax Justice campaign in Nigeria is profound. CISLAC has pioneered and hosted the Tax Justice and Governance Platform in Nigeria. This campaign is targeted at maintaining a fair and equitable tax administrative system in Nigeria. CISLAC has spread the influence of these platforms to the sub-national level covering 18 out of the 36 states in Nigeria. It has also been engaging the organised private sector in its bid to strengthen the policies and framework of the government to curb Illicit Financial Flows (IFF), Tax Evasion, lack of Fiscal Transparency in the areas of budgetary allocation and expenditure among other relevant engagements on this theme.
ENVIRONMENT AND CONSERVATION OF NATURE
This program area has a strategic focus to promote adherence and implementation of treaties on environmental conservation, implementation of environmental clean-up and food security in Nigeria.
CISLAC has been a part of the legal framework advocacy in the extractive sector, from advocating for the institutionalisation of the Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI) ACT in 2007, to advocating for the Petroleum Industries Bill for the past twenty (20) years and other reforms in the industry to foster transparency and accountability in the sector at large.
While making incremental progress in the Niger-Delta clean-up process, CISLAC is positioned in a strategic manner to join partners who will design and benefit from the 2020 plan of the organisation in the post-Niger Delta project. The recognition that CISLAC has successfully opened high-level entries to other members of the alliance is also a key element.
