BO roadmap webinar 5: Capacity building needs, technical and financial assistance, roadmap drafting.

Tuesday 20 September 10 am Oslo time  | Duration: 1 hour

Facilitator: Gisela Granado and Dyveke Rogan

The EITI’s experience with beneficial ownership work shows that there is often considerable lack of awareness and experience with beneficial ownership among stakeholders.  It is recommended that the multi-stakeholder group considers including capacity building and awareness raising campaigns in its roadmap, or actions aimed at identifying capacity building needs. In many countries, it may be necessary to start with a simple awareness raising campaign in order to explain what beneficial ownership is all about. This could be complemented with more technical capacity building for relevant government agencies, companies and civil society.

In this webinar, participants will consider the following questions: What capacity building activities will be needed over the next years? What activities will require technical and financial assistance? Who can be approached to support? The webinar will also consider next steps for drafting and finalizing the roadmap.
