sharing in governance of extractive industries
The consultant will collect and analyze data from existing reports published under the auspices of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI). To date, 35 countries have published a total of 205 EITI reports. The reports vary significantly in the degree to which they advance EITI’s overall aims of improving transparency and accountability in resource rich countries. They are also underutilized by global and in-country actors, due to the unavailability of electronic data, inconsistency across countries, and capacity and resource constraints. To address that issue, NRGI aims to conduct analysis that uses EITI data to demonstrate its usefulness and generate knowledge on key issues, including changes in revenue profiles over time, how revenues reflect the known fiscal obligations associated with individual mining and petroleum projects, and financial flows associated with state-owned companies. Building on an existing dataset template, the consultant will collect and analyze data that will form key inputs to this project.
