The participation of civil society organisations is central to the EITI process, as they provide essential support through their advocacy, training, monitoring and research efforts. We work with leading international civil society organisations in the areas of extractives transparency, tax, corruption and civic space to promote further transparency and the use of data to hold governments and companies accountable.
Civil society organisations help shape the implementation of the EITI Standard and participate in the governance of the EITI both locally through national multi-stakeholder groups and globally through the EITI Board.
The EITI Association has 1000+ civil society members. The civil society constituency guidelines detail how to become a civil society member of the EITI Association and set out how civil society members for the EITI Board are nominated. In each EITI implementing country, civil society has the right to nominate its own representatives to the EITI multi-stakeholder group through an open, inclusive and independent process.
