As countries prepare for the upcoming year, the Asia Team at the EITI Secretariat is organising a workshop entitled: Formulating effective work plans and measuring results in the Covid-19 context. This workshop will build the participants’ capacity to develop work plans that are responsive to the needs of the times, considering the limitations posed by the Covid-19 crisis to EITI implementation.

This session clarified what the aim of systematic disclosure is, why it is important to include in workplans, and how summary data can support in tracking these efforts. This hybrid webinar also included an open discussion where countries were able to learn from one another and share their own experiences.
