The Board agreed the limited engagement policy.
Board decision in full
The EITI Board adopted a policy on limited engagement with countries at its Board meeting in Manila in October 2017.
The policy set out in section 2 below has two parts. Section 2.1 sets out a mechanism for more strictly limiting EITI implementation to resource rich countries, and is intended for countries considering EITI implementation. Section 2.2 outlines a mechanism that the EITI could offer to existing implementing countries with limited extractive sectors, drawing on the tools available in the EITI Standard.
