The project development objective (PDO) is to assist Senegal in implementing its EITI agenda. The Government of Senegal has taken a strong ownership of the EITI process and other stakeholders (civil society, industry, parliamentarians) are showing interest in advancing governance and accountability in the extractives sector. EITI-NC in Senegal has started to play a regional leadership role and
facilitator for the adoption of extractive transparency measures both at the national and the regional levels. For instance, the EITI-NC hosted a meeting of African EITI National Coordinators to discuss the evolution of the Standard and the needs of their respective countries. Further, civil society and private sector stakeholders have successfully established independent constituency groups led by the
"Coalition for transparency in extractive industries", a coalition of some 40 CSOs, and the Senegalese Chamber of Mines. These constituency groupings are facilitators of the EITI dialogue but do not represent exclusive organizations monopolizing the EITI mandate, as the members of EITINC are drawn from a nationwide pool of stakeholders.
