EITI Compliant country (suspended)

The PWYP affiliated Transparency Coalition for Extractive Industries (TCEI) was launched in 2009. One of its first activities was the campaign for an access to information law which was eventually put in place as a law in June 2012. The coalition is currently campaigning for Yemen to get a fair deal for its resources and is calling for all Production-Sharing Agreements to be reviewed, due to a number of dodgy recent deals. Finally, the coalition also supports the implementation of EITI in the country and seeks to push the boundaries of the initiative to include production data for each extractive project in the country.
