Extractives Global Programmatic Support (EGPS)


The Extractives Global Programmatic Support (EGPS) Multi-Donor Trust Fund helps resource-dependent developing countries manage their oil, gas, and mining resources to support poverty reduction and boost inclusive, sustainable growth and development.

Our work focuses on strengthening transparency, governance, institutional capacity, local economic diversification, and regulatory frameworks to ensure social and environmental sustainability.

We have a strategic focus on supporting poor and fragile/conflict-affected countries in the governance of their oil, gas and mineral resources. EGPS grants assist governments to implement a range of reforms that build a robust, transparent extractive industries sector.


EGPS takes a holistic approach to extractive industries’ reform, recognizing that many pieces must be in place for the extractives sector to contribute to equitable growth, ensure environmental sustainability, provide fair and transparent revenue sharing and make a positive contribution to sustainable development.

The EGPS is a flexible and demand-driven program that responds to the challenges faced by resource-dependent developing countries, with the following four key areas:

Across all components, EGPS seeks to foster gender equality by levelling the playing field, include women’s voices in decision-making and promote access to equal access to extractives-related benefits. EGPS activities seek a long-term positive impact for the local population, particularly those communities affected by extractive industries’ activities.
