About Us

Sierra Leone Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative

Sierra Leone joined the EITI to promote transparency and accountability in the management of its minerals and oil/gas sectors and later established the SLEITI Multi-Stakeholder Group comprising government, mining companies and civil society representatives.

The MSG is the governing body of the EITI in Sierra Leone with the Vice President Dr. Mohamed Juldeh Jalloh serving as the Champion, and the Minister of State in the Office of the Vice President Frances Piagie Alghali as the group’s Chair. SLEITI has published 9 reports covering 2006 – 2018 financial years and revealing payments made to government by mining companies and corresponding revenues received from the extractive companies. The scope of SLEITI currently includes the minerals and oil/gas sectors. The SLEITI will review its 2 year work plan in order to make room for applicable requirements in the new 2016 Standard including the 2018 validation recommendations and corrective actions.
