Announcement: Nominees for the EITI International Board

Blogs and News

The Civil Society Advisory Group (CSAG) is pleased to announce ten nominees chosen through a rigorous selection process to serve as civil society representatives on the EITI International Board for the three-year term June 2023-2026. Please see below for details on the nominees, including their professional experience and geographic provenance. These nominees will be official only after the complaints period and after an election at the EITI Members’ Meeting at the EITI Global Conference in June in Dakar, Senegal.

During the nominations process, the CSAG was impressed by the rich talent in the EITI CSO Constituency and the strong commitment, achievements, and diversity of experience among the candidates. Among the 10 final nominees are six women and four men who bring unmatched collective depth and breadth of expertise: among them are veterans of the EITI who have successfully advocated on priority issues at the Board level, such as a revised Validation model, the 2022 Company Expectations, and revised 2023 EITI Standard; there are also many new leaders who have distinguished themselves in raising up transparency and accountability in national initiatives, introducing innovations in data dissemination and working directly with communities affected by the extractive sector. Together the nominees bring wide-ranging technical expertise across the supply chain, research, policy advocacy, stakeholder engagement, and negotiation skills, as well as strong networks at local, national, regional, and global levels. Thus, the nominees make up a group that is well placed to tackle continuing and cutting-edge priorities on the EITI agenda, including the protection of civil society and key issues at the heart of proposed revisions to the EITI Standard, including the energy transition, gender, and anti-corruption.

Complaints Period 22 April – 5 May
If you are a member of the EITI CSO Constituency and have a concern or complaint about the results of the nominee selection process, please contact the CSAG using this form by 5 May 11:59 p.m. GMT.
