In many countries, one of the most important impacts of EITI implementation has been the recommendations that have emerged from EITI reporting. These recommendations have typically focused on improving technical aspects of the EITI reporting process. However, with the expansion of the EITI Standard to cover the full extractive industry value chain and a greater focus on addressing national priorities for the extractive sector, EITI Reports are increasingly generating information that is more relevant to policy debates in implementing countries. EITI reporting can thus help identify issues and shortcomings related to natural resource governance, and recommendations from EITI Reports have the potential to strengthen government and company systems.
