Webinar: Consultation on how the EITI assesses country progress (EITI Validation)
Tuesday, 11 August 2015, 9:00 - 10:00 AM - Washington DC Time
Moderator: Jonas Moberg, Head, EITI International Secretariat
Speaker: Dyveke Rogan, Policy Director, EITI International Secretariat
Validation is intended to provide all stakeholders with an impartial assessment of whether EITI implementation in a country is consistent with the Requirements of the EITI Standard. However while there is agreement that the bar for achieving compliance should not be changed, there are concerns that the current validation system does not adequately consider the diversity of implementing countries or take into account progress over time. More background information is included in the Validation Consultation Note.
