Acerca del EITI

Creemos que los recursos naturales de los países pertenecen a sus ciudadanos. Nuestra misión consiste en promover el conocimiento sobre la gestión de los recursos naturales, fortalecer la gobernanza y la rendición de cuentas en los ámbitos público y corporativo, y aportar datos que sirvan de sustento para la creación de políticas y el diálogo multipartícipe en el sector extractivo. Al convertirse en miembros del EITI, los países se comprometen a divulgar información a lo largo de la cadena de valor de las industrias extractivas, desde la forma en que se otorgan los derechos sobre actividades extractivas, hasta el modo en que los ingresos llegan a manos de los gobiernos y cómo benefician a la población. A través de la participación en el EITI, más de 50 países han acordado a respetar un conjunto de normas comunes que determinan qué debe divulgarse y cuándo: en otras palabras, el Estándar EITI. En cada uno de los países que se ha unido al EITI hay un grupo multipartícipe, conformado por el gobierno, empresas y la sociedad civil, que colabora con la implementación del Estándar EITI.
