EITI stakeholders are invited to a seminar on "Why Transparency Matters in the Energy Transition: Helen Clark in conversation with Lord Adair Turner." This will be the first event of a new EITI seminar series, Transparency Matters.
There will be an opportunity for the audience to engage in the debate. The seminar will be followed by a reception with refreshments and snacks.
The EITI Secretariat is conducting a one-day seminar to explain the requirements under 2019 EITI Standard, focusing on beneficial ownership, contract transparency, state-owned enterprises and systematic disclosures.
The seminar will also include sessions on the role of EITI in addressing corruption, creating impact, and effectively communicating the EITI to various stakeholders.
The seminar is open to observers of the Board meeting and part of the EITI in Oslo week.
How can EITI practitioners use data to stimulate informed dialogue about extractive sector tax policies?
Tax administrations play a key role in ensuring that tax policies translate into effective revenue collection.
This event will provide information and ideas on how EITI practitioners can use data to stimulate informed dialogue about extractive sector tax policies, support tax administrations in revenue collection and prevent revenue loss.
The Board-approved summary data template is the EITI’s tool for collecting and publishing structured extractive sector data (an Excel file). The revised template draws on experience gained since the introduction of the summary data template in 2015 and on stakeholder consultations conducted in late 2018 and early 2019. The template came into force on the 1st of July, meaning that data published after this date uses the 2019 template.Topic: Anglophone Regional Training: Summary data 2.0

Worldwide, trust in government is under strain.

The impact of the oil, gas and mining industries is often a focal point of public concern and potential source of conflict.
