Assessment of progress in implementing the 2019 EITI Standard
On 20 October 2021, Senegal was found to have achieved a very high overall score (93 points) in implementing the 2019 EITI Standard. The Validation Report outlines the full assessment of Senegal’s Validation by requirement. It is based on extensive stakeholder consultations and a review of three templates that reflect the components of EITI Validation, namely “Outcomes and impact”, “Stakeholder engagement” and “Transparency”. The Board decision, including corrective actions needed before Senegal's next Validation, is published in the decisions register.
Validation is the EITI’s quality assurance mechanism to assess implementing countries on their ability to meet the provisions of the EITI Standard.
