Our eye on the EITI future (23/02/16)
The EITI has the potential to make a great contribution towards better natural resource governance. However, for that to happen, it needs to take a leap and turn from a transparency initiative into an accountability initiative. In this paper, PWYP presents its vision for where the EITI should be heading if it wants to deliver on its promise and principles.
Publish What You Pay – the global coalition of independent civil society that campaigns for citizens everywhere to benefit equally from their natural riches – has long worked with EITI in order to ensure that citizens have access to information about how their natural resources are managed. Indeed, PWYP looks forward to working professionally and constructively with all constituencies and stakeholders to advance the collective goals of the EITI. This paper is offered to the incoming EITI Chair and International Board as an initial input in that effort.
