In collaboration with the Office of the Auditor General of Norway (OAGN), WGEI, the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) International Secretariat organized a workshop on extractive industries, gathering representatives from EITI, Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) and civil society organizations (CSOs) from the Anglophone African region. The countries represented include Ethiopia, Ghana, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
The workshop focused on how the EITI and SAIs can work more closely together in strengthening public oversight of the extractive industries. The objectives were threefold. First, to explore the links and complementarities between SAIs and EITI implementation. Second, to discuss how SAIs can make use of the EITI platform in their audits. And third, to deliberate on how SAIs can support EITI efforts to improving the reliability of publicly accessible data.
