COALITION
< All members

Since its launch in 2006, PWYP Guinea has focused on EITI implementation, including disseminating EITI reports aimed at the wider population. It also advocates for national legislation to support transparency in mining contracts and was instrumental in the process that led to the adoption of a new mining code and implementing legislation. The coalition is currently monitoring companies’ fulfilment of legal obligations, promoting revenue allocation back to communities that live alongside mining sites, and assessing the environmental impact of mining.
