ToR for a targeted effort on transparency in commodity trading

It is proposed that there be a targeted effort on transparency in commodity trading is established to support a group of countries, where this issue is relevant, in a targeted effort to improve transparency commodity trading. All countries, where “in-kind” revenues are materials are invited to participate. This would include countries developing innovative approaches on transparency in commodity trading that go beyond the minimum requirements. 

This targeted effort will assist EITI implementing countries with significant commodity trading activities by the state or state-owned enterprises (SOEs) in addressing EITI requirements related to disclosure of sales of “in-kind” revenues by SOEs.
