About the campaign

PWYP Mozambique was launched in November 2008 by seven civil society organizations. The national coalition is hosted and coordinated by the Centre of Public Integrity (Centro de Integridade Pública – CIP). Mozambique joined the EITI as an implementing country in 2009, due to the increasing prominence of its extractive sector.
