Analysis: Should Australia sign up for the EITI?
Should Australia sign-up for the EITI? This was the question put to a multi-stakeholder group (MSG) of Australian government, industry and civil society members tasked with piloting the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI). The group recently concluded their work and answered the question. They reported options for the EITI to go ahead based on their findings and discussions. A 'hybrid model' was proposed to maximise the benefits of this initiative without incurring significant costs for industry.
