geo_mashup_map

In August 2011, 21 Tajikistani NGOs founded the “Transparency for Development” coalition. Since then, the coalition has been working on an informational campaign to promote EITI and fight corruption and poverty in Tajikistan – particularly at the sub-national level. The coalition aims to work closely with Tajik government on effective revenues management so that the population in poor regions can benefit from the extractive activity taking place in their localities. The affiliated coalition will also work for Tajikistan to make the most of its pilot on beneficial ownership within EITI.
