PWYP Togo focuses on implementing the EITI through disseminating data and monitoring revenue use. It advocates for an EITI law and for publication of mining contracts and information on revenues generated by the sector. The coalition is working for greater community involvement in mining negotiations, the transfer of revenues to communities living alongside the extractive industries, and land restoration following mine closures.
