Who We Are

National Coalition on Gas Flaring and Oil Spills in the Niger Delta (NACGOND) is a partnership of twenty member civil society groups that seek to address the lingering environmental degradation associated with oil spill, gas flare and illegal oil bunkering in the Niger Delta. It is also a vehicle that civil society groups can use to proactively suggest tangible solutions to the key issues surrounding oil spills and gas flaring.

NACGOND’s major approach is grounded in research and evidence based advocacy, which aims to ensure that issues of oil spills and gas flaring are immediately fixed, however they are caused. It also ensures that techniques for oil exploration activities and clean-up exercise used by International Oil Companies (IOCs) and responsible regulatory agencies adhere to international best practices.

The coalition was formally launched on the 16th of June, 2011 after a multi-stakeholder meeting involving Niger Delta nationality groups, civil society actors, state actors and the oil industry, facilitated by Chatham House, London.

NACGOND's geographical focus is the Niger Delta and our core thematic areas are: Good Governance,Oil Spills & Gas Flaring, Environmental sustainability and livelihood.
