This report presents examples from stakeholders on the ground in Africa, which illustrate how the EITI process has generated positive changes in the extractive sectors.
These changes have been relating to trust building, governance, economic management, civil society engagement and improved business environment. The EITI has been growing strongly over the last two years and there are now 32 countries implementing the EITI around the world. Of these 32 countries, 20 are in Sub Saharan Africa,
Nigeria is among the top 10 oil producers in the world and the leading producer in Africa. Meanwhile, valuable lodes of aluminum, gold, tin, iron ore, coal, niobium, lead, and zinc mean Nigeria is benefitting handsomely from the global commodities boom. But, accountability has been weak for decades and public services are weaker still. Over half of all Nigerians – 70 million people – live in poverty.
The EITI International Secretariat has during the last two years developed a wide range of publications and materials in several different languages about the EITI. This sheet provides an overview of the material that is currently available to all stakeholders.
