How should the EITI promote open data?
The EITI invites stakeholders to comment on how the EITI should promote open data through implementation of the EITI Standard.
The EITI Board has tasked the International Secretariat with preparing a policy paper on open EITI data. The paper which will be considered by the EITI Board in October 2015 will draw on international best practice to:
(a) clarify the EITI’s expectations regarding the access, release and re-use of EITI data, and
(b) clarify the role of implementing countries, the EITI Board, and the International Secretariat in promoting open EITI data.
The Board has also tasked the Secretariat, in consultation with stakeholders, to draft a framework for developing open EITI data standards for consideration by the Board. Additional details on the background for this work are provided below.
The consultation closes 31 August 2015.
