EITI International Governance Review: Invitation to provide input

The final report related to the consultation can be found here.

1. Invitation to provide input

The Board of the EITI has commissioned a consortium of consultants to carry out a Governance Review of the EITI at the global level.  EITI stakeholders are invited to get in touch with lead consultant, Sefton Darby, for any input into the review. Views are welcome throughout July.  Should you have any concerns / questions, please get in touch with Shemshat at the Secretariat.

2.  Background

This review will broadly look at how the Board, Board Committees and the Secretariat are working to see if there are any ways in which the governance institutions:

  • can better represent different constituencies (governments, companies and civil society);
  • can support decision making more effectively; and
  • can link more effectively with country-level EITI implementation. 

See the Terms of Reference for Governance Review attached below.
