Open data

Open data lies at the core of the EITI’s mission to promote the open and accountable management of natural resources.

By making data easily accessible, comprehensible and usable, EITI reporting can strengthen public debate, inform decision-making and promote public understanding of natural resource management. These objectives are underpinned by the EITI’s open data policy.

EITI REQUIREMENTS

The EITI Standard requires implementing countries to adopt national open data policies and to publish data that is freely accessible, timely, comprehensive, reliable, comprehensible and contributes to public debate. This is covered by EITI Requirements 4.8, 4.9, 7.1 and 7.2.

Summary data

The EITI collects and publishes information from implementing countries through summary data, a standardised and open format which covers financial data, reporting entities, government revenues and project-level data.

Summary data is accessible through various formats:

Summary data files integrate several data standards, such as HS codes for commodities and ISO system for currencies. They also classify revenue streams according to the IMF’s Government Finance Statistics (GFS) framework, which enables comparison of fiscal data across countries and years.

Data on extractive sector production, government revenues and top paying companies can be viewed and downloaded on our country pages.

Promoting transparency in the extractive industries is another area that the IMF has actively pursued in its technical assistance work. Under the aegis of the EITI, a template is now available for reporting and monitoring government revenues from natural resources.
