EITI Candidate


The PWYP affiliated “NGOs for Improving Transparency in Extractive Industries” was launched in 2004 and consists of more than 80 members both in the capital and regions.

The coalition has focused most of its efforts in supporting an effective and credible implementation of EITI and enhancing the participation of civil society. The coalition has also pushed for disclosure of beneficial ownership and campaigned for state owned companies to be more transparent.

The coalition currently faces a difficult time as the environment for civil society in Azerbaijan is rapidly deteriorating.
