Global Witness

For the last 17 years Global Witness has campaigned globally against natural resource related conflict and corruption, and the associated risks of environmental and human rights abuses. With Afghan mineral and petroleum reserves estimated to be worth between $1-$3 trillion (US), Afghanistan is now at a critical juncture. Natural resources could either become a vital source of revenue for the Afghan government or further fuel conflict and corruption. Global Witness is working to ensure that Afghanistan's riches are used to set the country on a path of sustainable and equitable development after decades of war.
