Call for views on progress in EITI implementation in Suriname

Крайний срок

Справочная информация

Suriname signed up to the EITI in 2017.

In March 2021, Suriname’s Validation against the 2016 Standard found that it had achieved “meaningful progress” in implementing the EITI Standard. 

Suriname’s next Validation against the 2019 EITI Standard is scheduled to commence on 1 October 2023.

In accordance with the Validation procedure, the EITI International Secretariat is seeking stakeholder views on Suriname’s progress in implementing the EITI Standard between March 2021 and October 2023.

Инструкции по предоставлению информации

Stakeholders are requested to send views to Alex Gordy (Agordy@eiti.org) by 1 October 2023.  

О ИПДО

Мы считаем, что природные ресурсы стран принадлежат их гражданам. Наша миссия — формирование представления об управлении природными ресурсами, укрепление государственного и корпоративного управления и предоставление данных для обеспечения более высокого уровня прозрачности и подотчетности в добывающем секторе. Становясь членами Инициатива Прозрачности в Добывающих Отраслях (ИПДО), страны обязуются раскрывать информацию на всех этапах цепочки создания стоимости в добывающей отрасли — от способов предоставления прав на добычу до путей распределения доходов правительством и возможностей получения общественностью выгод от этих доходов. Посредством участия в ИПДО свыше 50 стран согласились придерживаться Стандарта ИПДО — общего набора правил в отношении того, какую информацию и когда необходимо раскрывать. В каждой присоединившейся к ИПДО стране внедрение Стандарта ИПДО поддерживается многосторонней группой заинтересованных сторон, состоящей из представителей правительства, компаний и гражданского общества.

Цель

The EITI Standard requires that the government, extractive companies and civil society are fully, actively and effectively engaged in EITI implementation. The Secretariat is in particular seeking views on the following questions:

  1. Are the government, extractive companies and civil society fully, actively and effectively engaged in EITI implementation?
  2. Are there any obstacles or barriers to the participation of any of these constituencies or their sub-groups in EITI implementation?

Civil society engagement in the EITI will be assessed in accordance with EITI Protocol: Participation of civil society. Stakeholders are requested to provide input on Suriname's adherence with the protocol.

Any concerns related to potential breaches of the protocol should be accompanied with a description of the related incident, including its timing, actors involved and the link to the EITI process. If available, supporting documentation should be provided. Stakeholders may also indicate which provision of the civil society protocol they consider the breach(es) to relate to. Responses will be anonymised and be kept confidential.

The Secretariat is seeking views on the following questions related to civil society engagement:

  1. Are civil society organisations able to engage in public debate related to the EITI process and express opinions about the EITI process without restraint, coercion or reprisal?
  2. Are civil society representatives able to operate freely in relation to the EITI process?
  3. Are civil society representatives able to communicate and cooperate with each other regarding the EITI process?
  4. Are civil society representatives able to be fully, actively and effectively engaged in the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the EITI process?
  5. Are civil society representatives able to speak freely on transparency and natural resource governance issues, and ensure that the EITI contributes to public debate?

For purposes of the protocol, ‘civil society representatives’ refer to civil society representatives who are substantively involved in the EITI process, including but not limited to members of the multi-stakeholder group. The ‘EITI process’ refers to activities related to preparing for EITI sign-up; MSG meetings; CSO constituency side-meetings on EITI, including interactions with MSG representatives; producing EITI Reports; producing materials or conducting analysis on EITI Reports; expressing views related to EITI activities; and expressing views related to natural resource governance.
