COALITION
< All members

PWYP affiliate “NGOs for Improving Transparency in Extractive Industries” was launched in 2004 and now has more than 80 members both in Azerbaijan’s capital, Baku, and its regions. The coalition has focused its efforts on supporting effective and credible EITI implementation and enhancing civil society participation. It has also pushed for disclosure of beneficial ownership and campaigned for state-owned companies to be more transparent. However, the environment for civil society in Azerbaijan is rapidly deteriorating, with restrictions on freedom meaning the coalition and its allies currently face challenging times.
