Network of Indigenous Southern Sudanese Organisations (NESI) is an umbrella organization for 77 independent organizations in South Sudan. Norwegian People’s Aid has a cooperation agreement with NESI concerning the mobilization of local actors. By means of the network we have been able to reach out to NESI member organizations that also wish to work with oil issues. These include the Sudan Oil and Human Security Initiative (SOHSI), the Sudan Council of Churches and the Bentiu Women’s Association for Development and Rehabilitation (BWADR). We also cooperate with the European Coalition on Oil in Sudan (ECOS) which represents 50 organizations and undertakes research and political activities concerning the political aspects of oil extraction in Sudan.
