On 12 April, Togo published its first EITI Report on revenues from the extractives sector in 2010. Revenues from the water sector are included in this report, as water is considered by the Mining Code of Togo to be an extractive resource like phosphate and iron. The Togolese government has collected nearly US $ 60 million in royalties and taxes from 17 different mining companies and these companies have said to have paid just over US $ 62 million. This creates a discrepancy of about 5%.

This week, Togo published its first EITI Report on the 2010 revenues from the mining and oil sectors. This is a "miracle" for some, as access to information on revenue generated by phosphate, limestone and other minerals has long been inaccessible, even taboo.
Fourteen countries are meeting in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire, for a week of training and peer learning. Chair Fredrik Reinfeldt joined the participants on the first day of the training to discuss the impact the EITI is having in their countries. Please see the programme attached below.
