The KCSPOG works on behalf of civil society organizations and civil society leaders. It does not claim to legally represent the citizens of Kenya. However, it recognizes the principle and the importance of accountability to citizens and those particularly affected by Kenya’s oil industry. Citizens and the host community influence the strategies and actions of the KCSPOG through County CSO platforms. The KCSPOG reports its own progress to recognized County platforms that in turn report back to their own members and constituents.
