Building NGO capacity for pipeline monitoring and audit in Azerbaijan

In Azerbaijan, BP and the Open Society Institute-Assistance Foundation are working together to support national NGOs’ capacity development through facilitated monitoring and audit of the Baku-Ceyhan-Tbilisi and the South Caucasus Pipeline projects.

Among the key objectives of the programme were developing the proficiency of local NGOs to conduct effective pipeline monitoring and introducing successful international monitoring standards and practices to Azerbaijan.

The OSI-AF also evaluated BP’s 2005 annual recruitment programme positively, and has made a number of constructive suggestions that BP has agreed to implement in subsequent rounds of annual recruitment.
