sharing in governance of extractive industries
*Please note: the deadline has been extended to the 3rd of March 2017*
The EITI is a multi-stakeholder initiative made up of three constituencies: civil society, extractive companies and governments. Each constituency is equally involved in the decision making process of the EITI, both at the international level through the Board and at the national level through multi-stakeholder groups. On the international Board, civil society has five seats who are currently filled by five full and five alternate representatives. To see who currently represents civil society, please visit the EITI website
Each constituency is responsible for setting up its own governance rules, so how it will select its representatives to the Board, how it will coordinate and consult the membership, etc. Those rules are captured in the "constituency guidelines". For civil society, they can be found here.
The EITI is now running an open consultation on those constituency guidelines to help improve how constituencies govern themselves. For civil society in particular, the consultation offers a very welcome opportunity to feedback on the way civil society has self-organised so far and how further progress can be made in ensuring that civil society actors involved in the implementation of the EITI have their voices heard at the international Board level. Civil society is strongly encouraged to make submissions. Comments received will inform the process of revising the current guidelines over the coming months.
The consultation is open until the 20th of February and submissions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and to Wendy Tyrrell at email@example.com
