sharing in governance of extractive industries
As the extractives sector embraces increasing transparency, stakeholders face new challenges related to data proliferation, fragmentation, dispersion, and quality control. Overcoming these challenges is more important than ever to ensure efficiency and strengthen existing systems, avoid duplication, manage expectations, support evidence-based decision-making and build stakeholder trust.
In collaboration with the EITI, UNEP and the World Bank are currently piloting MAP-X (Mapping and Assessing the Performance of Extractive Industries), an innovative information management and stakeholder engagement platform, in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DR Congo).
MAP-X aims to support EITI mainstreaming by embedding transparency in government systems, improving stakeholder access to financial information from EITI Reports and, where possible, relating the information to socio-economic and environmental performance indicators. This post summarises ways in which the EITI mainstreaming agenda can be implemented at country level and presents initial lessons learnt in the DR Congo. Read the full blog post: here
