Colombia joined the EITI in 2014.
In June 2018, Colombia made "satisfactory progress" in implementing the 2016 EITI Standard.
The next Validation of Colombia against the 2019 EITI Standard is scheduled to commence on 1 October 2022.
In accordance with the Validation procedure, the EITI International Secretariat is seeking stakeholder views on Colombia’s progress in implementing the EITI Standard between January 2018 and September 2022.
We believe that a country’s natural resources belong to its citizens. Our mission is to promote understanding of natural resource management, strengthen public and corporate governance and accountability, and provide the data to inform policymaking and multi-stakeholder dialogue in the extractive sector. By becoming a member of the Extractives Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), countries commit to disclose information along the extractive industry value chain – from how extraction rights are awarded, to how revenues make their way through government and how they benefit the public. Through participation in the EITI, more than 50 countries have agreed to a common set of rules governing what has to be disclosed and when – the EITI Standard. In each country that has joined the EITI, a multi-stakeholder group, composed of government, companies and civil society, supports implementation of the EITI Standard.
