PWYP Zambia was established in 2009 and has played an important role in supporting the implementation of EITI. As well as participating in the EITI multi-stakeholder group, the coalition analyses the EITI reports and has been involved in the drafting of Zambia’s EITI bill. The coalition supports communities affected by mining, helping them to get the best deal possible out of extraction.
