Improving transparency and governance along the value chain

Natural resources, such as oil, gas and minerals should benefit all citizens. Implementation of the EITI ensures transparency and better management of the steps along this value chain, and is overseen by a multi-stakeholder group in each country.

"Peace and security are better guaranteed when the citizens have access to basic social amenities, hope in their future which can come by prudent management of natural resources by their governments"
Clare Short, former Chair of the EITI

In governing natural resources, leaders of a country oversee the decision to extract up to the use of revenues generated from resource extraction.
