The Extractives Global Programmatic Support (EGPS) Multi-Donor Trust Fund supports resource-rich developing countries in the governance of their oil, gas and mineral resources so they are used sustainably and transparently to reduce poverty and boost sustainable economic growth. To achieve this objective, the EGPS provides support for programmes ranging from transparency and governance, to legal and regulatory reform, local economic diversification, institutional strengthening and social and environmental sustainability. 

The EGPS supports programmes that focus on four components, which can be selected and customised as needed and relevant to each country’s circumstances. Component 1 (Transparency and Governance) provides funds for the implementation of the Extractive Industries Transparency initiative.
