  • 1. WESTERN REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT FORUM PREPARING MINDS AND SPACE TO THE OIL & GAS CULTURE I. Objective: This Forum aims at CREATING AN INTEGRATED AGENDA FOR THE WESTERN REGION. It will do so by building on achievements made in the public debate on O&G in Ghana, including: • Availability of draft O&G legislation (to be made available at the event by the organizers) • Summary of Citizens’ Summit on O&G organized by the Civil Society Platform on O&G held on June 24, 2010 in Accra • Draft Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) for the Oil Sector in Ghana. II. Output: The Forum will include three sessions each with four presentations and time for discussion after each session. The output is a “Western Region Agenda” which, building on national processes, described the priority actions for the Western Region and its stakeholders.
