To encourage the analysis of the data published by EITI implementing countries, the EITI collects and publishes summary data:

  • Via our API: see 
  • In excel files, per country, per year: see here. We call these “summary data files” 
  • You can also use the select tool below to compare key figures and download related excel files

The EITI also encourages routine online reporting. For more information, see our page on systematic disclosure

Examples of how implementing countries are publishing open data at source are available below.

Compare key figures in EITI Reports

The quick summary tool below allows you to compare key figures from EITI Reports with each other.

All available summary data files for EITI Reports have been uploaded to our website. These files are also stored on a google drive, accessible through the link below. The files are in Microsoft Excel format.

What data does the EITI cover?

Through the reporting process, countries implementing the EITI Standard disclose scores of data. The International Secretariat republishes data collected by the countries via this website and our API.

The data cover: 

  • Full Government disclosure of revenues from the extractive industry – coded using Government Finance Statistics (GFS) from the IMF. 
  • Payments from companies to the government, disaggregated by revenue stream, company and project.
  • Indicators: These cover contextual and aggregate financial data for EITI Requirements 2-6 (production, export, GDP contribution, the state’s share of production, links to license and contracts registries, etc…) as well as their availability (online, in the EITI Report,...) 

Through Validation, the International Secretariat and independent Validator evaluate the country’s performance towards reaching the EITI Requirements. Validation covers three parts:

  1. The EITI processgovernment, company and civil society engagement in the EITI process, planning and following-up on objectives, the performance of the multi-stakeholder group (requirement 1).
  2. Comprehensiveness and quality of disclosure: does the country cover, through routine government and company disclosure or via EITI reporting, all of the areas as required by the Standard? (Requirements 2-6).
  3. Outcomes and impact of the EITI in its contribution to public debate, data accessibility and review of recommendations and impact (requirement 7).

The performance data per sub-requirement, including a short description, are visible on the scorecards on the Board decisions on Validation and via the Validations query on our API. 

EITI and open data

The EITI Principles declare that “a public understanding of government revenues and expenditure over time [can] help public debate and inform choice of appropriate and realistic options for sustainable development” (EITI Principle 4).

The EITI Standard therefore requires EITI Reports that are “comprehensible, actively promoted, publicly accessible, and contribute to public debate” (EITI Requirement 7.1). Improving the accessibility and comparability of EITI data is essential to realise these objectives.

To further this work, the EITI Board has agreed an open data policy. EITI Requirements 7.1 and 7.2 require national open data policies and data to be published in a way that is freely accessible.

This page brings together examples of open data disclosures in EITI implementing countries as well as extractives data collected by implementing countries and submitted to the EITI International Secretariat.

Open data is also an important stepping-stone towards EITI mainstreaming. Mainstreaming is about opening up governments systems by embedding the EITI’s disclosure requirements into routine online reporting. For more information about mainstreaming, please visit our this page.

EITI summary data

Countries implementing the EITI Standard are publishing extractives-related data online or through EITI Reports, disclosing the revenues and other information on the extractive sectors of our members. The reports and data also include a wide range of information on characteristics of the report, such as the scope of the report and location of additional sources. They also address the availability of contextual information, such as contracts, licenses, legal and fiscal framework as well as a summary of the sector specific figures (contribution to the economy, total revenues, etc).

In addition, the implementing countries have to submit data to the EITI International Secretariat for each fiscal year, according to a standardised template, called summary data file.

Summary data is EITI’s tool for collecting and publishing data from EITI Reports in structured way. The summary data files are Excel files, which are filled out by our implementing countries using the Summary Data Template. The national secretariats submit one Excel-file for every fiscal year covered by an EITI Report. The files include classification of revenue streams according to the IMF’s Government Finance Statistics (GFS) Manual 2014 framework. GFS is an international standard for classifying government revenues, making them comparable across different countries and time-periods.

These files are then imported to our website, forming the basis for most of the visualisations and information covered on our country pages.

Afghanistan's Ministry of Mines and Petroleum transparency portal publishes all license applications, allocated licenses, information about the owners of the companies holding the license as well as revenues generated from mining companies accessible to the public. The information can also be viewed on the map. License and payment information can be searched and also exported in bulk. 

The data is published directly from the mining licensing system at MoMP. See the blog below for further information. The portal was launched in November 2018. Users must register to access the information on the portal. Registration is free. 

Democratic Republic of Congo

In addition to its annual reports, the Democratic Republic of the Congo publishes data on revenues for each company on a subsite to their main website. A different section of the website also allows companies to make electronic submissions, rather than through other forms of submissions. Also, in October 2015, the government in collaboration with United Nations Environmental Programme and the World Bank launched a pilot project called MAP-X. The project aims to embed EITI reporting in government systems. The first phase of this project included an assessment of government systems or “data readiness score card”, which evaluates the extent to which EITI data is machine readable, interoperable, publicly accessible, regularly updated and reliable. You can read more about the project on in this blog.


Germany EITI (D-EITI) publishes its EITI Reports entirely on an interactive data portal. It provides contextual information on resource extraction, legal frameworks, revenues and innovative topics such as the environment and subsidies. The data of the reconciliation report is visualized. The interface was designed to raise interest among the general public and the content can directly be shared over social media. All information is available for download as open data. The portal is built on the code provided by US-EITI and is available in both German and English. The source code is shared on Github and its biligual feature can be adapted to any language.


Ghana EITI, in collaboration with the Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI), created the Ghana extractives dashboard. The site contains interactive visualisations of revenues, production and company information. The dashboard intends to increase the use of extractives data by providing easily accessible information for civil society, journalists and policy makers.


Indonesia includes a statistical section on their website containing some interactive graphs for production and revenues. They have also created a data portal, with the support of the World Bank. The Indonesian Extractive Industries Portal is part of national efforts to facilitate public communication and dissemination of EITI Reports. This portal is a "one-stop -shop" containing relevant data, information and analysis on the extractive sector and the economic and social impacts in Indonesia. The information and analysis presented on the portal will are taken from EITI Reports and other sources, providing contextual information, information of state revenues, as well as related materials such as infographics and data visualisations.


In Kazakhstan the National Stakeholders Council and the Ministry of Energy have taken the lead in using online open data platforms for mainstreaming EITI disclosures. They request that companies file their EITI disclosures as part of other mandatory reporting using a pre-existing platform – the EGSU. The system has proved to be successful during the data collection processes in the past and the Kazakh EITI team is improving it further to reconcile data automatically. This system enabled Kazakhstan to become the first country to publish a 2015 EITI Report.


Mongolia have sought to cover a large number companies in their reconciliation reports. As a result, Mongolia’s EITI Reports became large bulky documents containing valuable information but in an inaccessible format. Therefore, in 2015, Mongolia launched the EITIM e-reporting system, through which 922 companies reported electronically. The portal includes information on licenses, spatial data, as well as financial and production data. A blog about the efforts changing from PDFs to online portal can be is linked below.


In Norway, the government maintains a site called Norwegian Petroleum containing “Everything you need to know about Norwegian petroleum activities”. The portal routinely provides the information required by the EITI Standard. The portal contains a wide array of maps and graphs ready for download, as well as contextual information. In October 2017, the EITI Board decided that Norway EITI can ‘mainstream implementation’ by publishing information through this portal, rather than in an EITI Report.


The Philippines provides a variety of solutions on its website. Firstly, headline revenue-data is presented on the homepage, including an interactive chart. In addition, they have compiled resource contracts into a single open database. In addition, the Philippines has taken advantage of the fact that the EITI Standard 2016 allows to refer to existing government disclosures, such as linking to the Mineral Statistics page of the Mines and Geosciences Bureau.


Senegal incorporates open data on their webpages through a mix of interactive charts and downloadable data files. While the interactive charts cover aggregate information on revenues and/or production volumes, the data files available on Senegal’s website includes detailed revenues for each of the companies included in the EITI Reports.

Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone has, through its Online Repository, made revenues generated from mining companies accessible to its citizens. It contains all mining licenses and payments, published directly from the mining licensing system at the National Minerals Agency. See the blog below for further information. The portal was launched in January 2012 and adopted by SLEITI in early 2014. Users must register to access the information on the portal.

United Kingdom

The United Kingdom publishes Excel files on their government websites covering most of the information contained in their EITI Reports, the latest for FY2015. This is a great example of how to perform simple publications that may well be the most effective way of providing EITI data to the public and other interested parties.


Ukraine  has published 2014-2015 and 2016 EITI reports in open data format on their government website, covering both company and government data. The national parliament also passed the widely-backed Law ‘On ensuring transparency in extractive industries’ on 18 September 2018. The new legislation sets out legal principles for the collection, disclosure and dissemination of data on Ukraine’s extractive industries.


Zambia EITI (ZEITI) recently published a new website, which also contains a separate data-section. This section, like the United Kingdom, uses the simple example of publishing excel-files containing the information for Zambia's EITI Reports. They also publish the 'Summary data' files that ZEITI submits to the International Secretariat.
