Roundtable on Sub National issues and the EITI

Stakeholders, experts and practitioners will be discussing EITI implementation at the sub-national level (Regional, Municipal governments) on May 12th in Washington DC. Transparency in the flows and uses of resources from extractive industries accruing to sub-national governments is key to ensure mineral wealth translates to development and reduction of poverty. Regional and local administrations face challenges similar to central governments. The EITI can be an effective tool in facing those challenges.
