TRANSPARENT MINING

Kyrgyzstan

Anti-Corruption Research Center Transparency International Kyrgyzstan is part of the second cohort of five Transparency International Chapters to recently join TI’s global programme to improve transparency in the process of awarding mining permits. 

This global programme seeks to improve transparency and accountability in the extractive industries, focusing specifically on the very first link in the mining value chain: the decisions by government to grant mining or exploration permits and licenses and negotiate contracts.

The Chapter is currently in the process of collecting, reviewing and validating information about how the mining approvals process works in the country, and where loopholes or weaknesses exist that might lead to corruption. Their research report will be published in early 2020.
