The last year has seen unprecedented activity in EITI implementing countries as 23 of the 31 candidate countries have had validation deadlines. Twenty-three implementing countries have now produced EITI reports – more than half of them have produced these reports for the first time this year.Therefore, the 3rd National Coordinators' meeting in November will be a timely opportunity to discuss:
- Lessons from the validation and the EITI reporting processes
- EITI impacts and communications
- EITI policy and rules refinement
- Organisation of the Implementing Countries constituency including choosing representatives for the 2011-2013 EITI International Board
Alongside the meeting, the European Commission and the EITI International Secretariat is organising an EU seminar on Tuesday, 9 November. It will be attended by the NCs, plus representatives from the relevant EU geographical desk.
