DRC: 27 of the 29 requirements of the international EITI standard met

DR Congo fulfils 27 of the 29 requirements of the international standard « Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI). Holenn Agnog, head of the Technical Secretariat and a.i. National Coordinator of the EITI-DRC told Environment Minister Claude Nyamugabo. It was during a hearing granted to him on Thursday, October 3, 2019.

The two personalities also discussed the different activities undertaken by EITI-DRC, its configuration, functioning, state of play and current priorities facing this institution.

« In short, we are satisfied to see the DRC, our country fulfilling 27 of the 29 requirements of the international EITI standard, » said Ms Holenn Agnong accompanied by her collaborator and communication officer, Marie-Louise Djuma.

She took the opportunity of this visit to present the EITI-DRC’s priorities to the Minister of ESD. This package includes the country’s validation process by the International EITI, whose delegation is expected to be held in Kinshasa on 21 October 2019.

There is also the ongoing preparation of the 2017 and 2018 EITI Annual Reports, which contain all the information on the country’s mining and petroleum sector.

Also on the agenda were the recruitment of the new national coordinator, the updating and signing of the Decree governing the structure, not to mention the holding, in the very next few days, of the Executive Committee meeting, with the full posting of all stakeholders.

Regarding the recruitment of the new National Coordinator, since Professor Mack Dumba’s suspension from this position, his replacement has never been appointed.

In an order signed in September 2017 by Modest Bahati, Minister of Planning at the time, the latter justified this decision by « withdrawing the confidence in the person of this suspended personality ». Two years later, it is more than urgent that his replacement be appointed.

In his capacity as Second Vice President of the EITI-DRC, Environment and Sustainable Development Minister Claude Nyamugabo expressed his satisfaction with the information received. He promised the EITI-DRC Technical Secretariat his unconditional support and that of Deputy Minister Jeanne Ilunga Zaina.
