In September and October, the US Department of the Interior is hosting public information sessions throughout the country regarding the US Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI). This is part of an effort to make the public aware of a set of international standards promoting increased transparency of the extractive industries, called the EITI. In the past, the US has encouraged other mineral rich states to adopt the EITI, and now the US plans to practice what it's preached. By the end of this year, the US hopes to apply to become an EITI-conforming country and make sure that the American public receives every dollar due in federal revenues for the extraction of natural resources.
With the benefits of extractive resources come responsibilities, and the US EITI committee wants to hear from the communities most affected by extractive resources to ensure this policy will help the American public in real, meaningful ways. At the public outreach meetings, US EITI committee members will provide an overview of the US EITI and gather public comments, which will inform the application to the international EITI Secretariat this December.
