The Economic and Monetary Community of Central Africa (CEMAC), reports that Equatorial Guinea has taken part in the 2nd Training Session for Civil Society Organizations (CSO) and the Transparency Initiative Committee for Extractive Industries (EITI in its English initials) for the community area, together with Gabon, which took place from 24th to 28th April in Libreville, the Gabonese capital.
This training session, within the framework of activities organized by the CEMAC, in collaboration with the project to Strengthen Governability in Raw Materials in the sector in Central Africa (REMAPCEMAC), under the German Development Cooperation (GIZ).
The training, which took place under the banner “The Civil Society and Citizen’s Control of Civic Action”, was conceived within the continuity of a series of courses which opened in March, in Malabo, on matters relating to the good governance of the value chain for raw materials.
The Libreville session was an opportunity for the participants to examine strategic elements for civic action, techniques to improve their interaction with the public and private players and the defence of interests, together with contributing towards the rational exploitation of raw materials, the fight against poverty, and sustainable harmonious economic development for the sub-region.
