Thinking and Working Politically: Lessons from FOSTER in Nigeria

Elisa Lopez Lucia, Joanna Buckley, Heather Marquette, Neil McCulloch

The Facility for Oil Sector Transparency and Reform (FOSTER) was a £14 million programme that has helped Nigeria to transform its governance of the oil and gas industry. It achieved some remarkable successes in an unfavourable political environment as a result of thinking and working politically.

This paper examines the outcomes from five ‘clusters’ of FOSTER interventions. It highlights lessons on three issues: how interventions were implemented; their content (what was done); and their politics, including how the programme worked politically and dealt with internal incentives.
