What the Extractive Industries Review (EIR) is?

What is the EIR?

The Extractive Industries Review was launched by the World Bank Group to discuss its future role in the extractive industries with concerned stakeholders. The aim of this independent review is to produce a set of recommendations that will guide involvement of the World Bank Group in the oil, gas and mining sectors. The discussion is taking place within the context of the World Bank Group’s overall mission of poverty reduction and the promotion of sustainable development.


NEW! The Extractive Industries Review will be undertaking their first project visit to Papua New Guinea, August 4-10, 2002. Click on the link for more details.
