Training for government officials and other stakeholders about the EITI is essential for success of the initiative. In 2009, three training seminars have been scheduled for stakeholders in EITI implementing countries, including countries that have recently joined like Tanzania or are seeking to do so like Mozambique. These seminars will take place in Berlin, Germany (6-8 May); West Africa (3-5 June Douala, Cameroon); and East Africa (15-17 June Dar es Salaam). The seminars are closed events.
Participants from countries including: Nigeria, Liberia, Azerbaijan, Timor-L, Niger, Cameroon and more.
The EITI and the Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI) are arranging a regional workshop for implementing and outreach countries in the Middle East and North Africa. Participants from Lebanon, Tunisia, Libya and Jordan will have an opportunity to learn about the EITI and exchange experiences with two implementing countries in the region, Iraq and Yemen.
