A Manual on Integrity Due Diligence for Licensing in Extractive Sectors
Cari L. Votava, Jeanne M. Hauch and Francesco Clementucci
Reducing corruption in the extractive sectors is now a high priority of the global development agenda because of the degree to which such corruption can impede economic development and contribute to illicit financial flows (IFFs). This kind of corruption can prove complicated and intractable to eliminate because mitigating corruption in natural resource and extractive sectors requires enhancing transparency and improving the quality and effectivenes
Oil discoveries can constitute a major positive and exogenous shock to economic activity, but the resource curse hypothesis would suggest they might also be detrimental to growth over the long run. This paper utilizes a new methodology for estimating growth underperformance to examine the extent to which discoveries depress the growth path of a country following a discovery and prior to production starting.
This paper is not mentioning the EITI, however it covers issues which are relevant for the EITI process.
The Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) is an international standard to ‘promote open and accountable management of natural resources’. By encouraging governments, extractive companies, civil society and the public to engage in discourse around transparency of the extractive sector, it aims to facilitate the management of a country’s natural resource wealth to benefit all its citizens.
This scoping study was commissioned to review data formats and recommend standards and bench marks for data output required under the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) Standard.

This is a survey conducted by the Bank Information Center (BIC) in 2009 on civil society participation in the EITI.
It included contributions from civil society organizations (CSOs) and other individuals involved in the process in EITI candidate countries. The survey questions were intended to address important aspects of CSO participation, including: inclusiveness, transparency, independence, and accountability. The result of the survey is compiled in this report by Heike Mainhardt-Gibbs.
This report published by the World Bank reviews the experience of six countries on EITI subnational implementation. The study supports that the subnational dimension of EITI is relevant in resource-rich regions within countries that host large oil, gas and mining operations given that most of the national revenues from the extractives industries come from a specific region. By reviewing the cases of Ghana, Indonesia, Mongolia, Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Peru, the study reveals some characteristics of implementing the EITI standard in a subnational level.
