Project Description The project duration is expected to be four years (2016, 2017, 2018, 2019) in support of the implementation of the MEITI work plan for the period 2016 - 2019. The four objectives of the MEITI work plan are: i) Reform of resource governance; ii) Creating an enabling environment for EITI; iii) Implementing EITI; and iv) Increasing accessibility of data. Specific activities include coordination of MSG and sub-committee meetings, outreach events, studies, capacity building and training, communications, and the preparation of annual EITI Reports and a validation report in 2017. Moreover, it is also envisioned that the project will support the development of a digitized mineral cadastre system. This is not a routine component of EITI support, but will help Myanmar comply with the 2013 EITI Standard by directly addressing the issue of data quality which is particularly prevalent in Myanmar.
