EITI calls on Niger to enforce adopted reforms for greater transparency in its extractives sector

The Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) has called on Niger's government to enforce reforms adopted in 2010 in order to foster greater transparency in its extractives sector.

Public finance reforms have been initiated in the last decade in Niger, such as annual audits of the government’s extractives revenue collection by the auditor general. However EITI said that while such reports following EITI standards were released for 2010, 2011 and 2012, only 9% of the audit recommendations have been implemented since the 2010 report.

The publication of the 2013 to 2014 audit report is still pending. EITI highlighted that one of the main issues is that the  auditor general is under staffed with only three staff assigned to annual extractives audits.
