The Liberia Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (LEITI) is an autonomous public entity
created by statute to promote transparency over extractive industry revenues. It is part of a global
initiative known as Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) International. Since the
establishment of the LEITI, it has made significant progress resulting in Liberia being bestowed
the “Best EITI Implementing Country Award” in 2009.
The LEITI is overseen by a Multi-Stakeholder Steering Group (MSG), comprising of
government, civil society, representatives of companies in Liberia’s extractive industry, the
National Traditional Council of Liberia, with international development partners as observers.
The LEITI Secretariat is responsible for the day-to-day implementation of the policy decisions
and directives of the MSSG and leads nationwide efforts in implementing Liberia’s LEITI law.
The Secretariat’s role specifically includes outreach, advocacy, communication, monitoring and
facilitating information sharing. More information about the LEITI can be found on the LEITI
