EITI Compliant

The NGOs Consortium on EITI in Kyrgyzstan was founded in November 2004. The consortium has long worked with Publish What You Pay but only became an affiliated coalition in 2013.

As well as supporting the implementation of EITI, the Consortium carries out a lot of work at the subnational level. It has a strong network which is uses to build a comprehensive dialogue between local communities, mining companies and local authorities.

One of the targets for the consortium over the next couple of years is to increase its subnational network to spread to tough-to-reach regions, in order to decrease conflicts and tensions among the local population. The coalition also intends to promote leaders amongst the youth so that they can pick up the mantle of the transparency movement in Kyrgyzstan.
