Participants from Argentina, Brazil, Belize, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Peru, United States, and Trinidad and Tobago will gather in Lima, Peru to discuss how the EITI can be used as a transparency and accountability mechanism through the extractive industries value chain in their countries.

The regional conference will include sessions on:
- Efficient transparency: mainstreaming EITI in government systems
- EITI Getting closer to people: Use of the EITI as a dialogue tool and examples of sub-national models of EITI implementation
- Could EITI be used to shed light to environmental issues in the extractives industries?
