Summary

EITI Reports can be an important source of information on how a country’s natural resources are managed.

However, the subject matter is often complex and technical, which can be challenging to present in an understandable way, especially for non-specialists. Some early EITI Reports have proved to be difficult for citizens, journalists and other stakeholders to understand and make use of.

In order to realise the benefits from the EITI, and to meet the requirements in the EITI Standard, implementing countries are advised to devote time and resources toward ensuring that the EITI Reports are readily comprehensible.
