The EITI Board: ensuring civil society engagement will be critical.
Ethiopia’s first EITI Report makes data on the country’s extractive sector available for the first time.
How EITI can help identify and address challenges in artisanal and small-scale mining.
Artisanal and small scale mining (ASM) provides a livelihood for millions of people in several resource rich developing countries and is a major source of economic development for many rural and regional communities.
ASM is the manual extraction of minerals by artisanal and small-scale miners. The manual miners often dramatically outnumber their counterparts in the industrial sector.
The EITI International Secretariat will be visiting Ethiopia from 27-28 November 2017 to help them prepare for the upcoming Country validation in April 2018. The latest EITI disclosures (2014) show that Ethiopia received USD 148 million from extractive industry taxation. Two fifths of these revenues came from gold production and another two fifths from cement manufacturing. To find out more about Ethiopia, please visit the country page
Regional gatherings are an opportunity to draw on cross-cutting issues and to promote debate and dialogue amongst countries. This workshop aims to explore options for mainstreaming transparency and public disclosure of data in government systems; to take stock of progress with beneficial ownership disclosures.It also seeks to share experiences between countries that have been Validated and address common barriers to compliance with the EITI Standard.
The International Secretariat is visiting the country to carry out the first stage (Initial data collection and stakeholder consultation) of Validation. To find out more about Ethiopia (includes information on the country manager), visit the country page
