Transcript

  • 1. Exploring Synergies from Partnership The Case of the EITI and Certified Trading Chains in Mineral Production (CTC) Nicholas Garrett 8 th Annual CASM Conference Brasilia, October 2008
  • 2. Partnership
    • “ Partnership is critical to effective problem solving of the challenges facing business and the developing world. Simply put, the issues are too complex and interdependent, and the resources and legitimacy for tackling them too dispersed between sectors, for any one group to have all the solutions alone.”
    • (Source : Jane Nelson , Director of the Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative at the Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University)

  • 3. Partnership - Caveats
    • Not an answer to every problem
    • Not easy to establish, sustain and scale up
    • Face strategic, policy-related challenges
    • Operational Obstacles
    © Nicholas Garrett, 2008 Think first! Does it make sense?
  • 4. Partnership - Benefits
    • Harness the skills and resources of different sectors and actors
    • Improve reach and impact
    • Achieve greater efficiency
    • Increase legitimacy

  • 6. Exploring Synergies from Partnership The EITI and CTC – why?
    • Both initiatives:
      • provide incentives for companies and governments to support good natural resource governance in host countries
      • have strong emphasis on transparency
      • are of strategic importance to German development cooperation
    • The EITI:
      • already enjoys widespread political support
      • welcomes debate on possible future avenues to further transparency, also in ASM
    • CTC:
      • requires more widely spread political support
      • seeks legitimacy
      • is learning

  • 7. What is CTC
    • Step by step move from CSR system of governance and assurance towards third party verification to possibly government regulations
    • Phased approach from voluntary towards mandatory assurance of social and environmental performance
    • Draft Standards have been developed
    • Not a final product, planning & consultation are ongoing
    • Rwanda Pilot to start 2009
    • DRC concept developed 2009

  • 18. CTC and the EITI – Contact Points
    • Value Chain Intervention
      • Biggest overlap with EITI concepts, particularly “EITI in ASM”
      • CTC has wide focus, so actual overlap depends on depth of implementation of any of the EITI concepts
    © Nicholas Garrett, 2008
  • 19. CTC and the EITI – Contact Points
    • CTC Standard 17 : “Implementing companies are required to meet fiscal obligations required by host government law and publish all payments made to government in accordance with the standards of the EITI”
    © Nicholas Garrett, 2008 creates and enhances the governance structures required for the implementation of the EITI and/or its related concepts does not equate to EITI implementation in ASM
  • 20. CTC and the EITI – Partnership
    • Synergies vary between CTC and the EITI – and CTC and the EITI concepts
    • If the EITI concepts were to develop further, more synergies would arise and partnership could be explored further
    • Significant synergies between the EITI and CTC already exist - scope for collaboration in specific areas.
