EITI Compliant

The PWYP Coalition in Mongolia was launched in 2006. The coalition has focused its efforts on the effective implementation of EITI but also works on legislative processes around the natural resource framework and with communities at the subnational level. The coalition has led campaigns to ensure transparency at all stages of mining production and increase public engagement and debate on natural resource issues.

The coalition is also currently campaigning for the adoption of an EITI law and a new Mineral Law.
