The Civil Society Roundtable ended 2015 successfully

On December 3, the Civil Society Roundtable held its last meeting of the year, which aimed to review the main results of the Roundtable in 2015 and define the main lines of action for 2016.

During the meeting, a pilot project on environmental payments made by companies in the energy mining sector was discussed. It was also concluded that the “Regional meeting of social organizations: expanding the agenda of the extractive sector in Latin America” managed to emphasize the use of information and raised issues such as the need to take EITI to the local level, complement the initiative with other efforts in the sector and the importance of an active role for civil society.

Finally, the Mesa has been gaining more and more space in the country thanks to the development of regional workshops. In 2015, workshops were held in Cordoba, Antioquia, Huila and Nariño, all of which were aimed at raising awareness of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative among social organizations in these departments.
