The workshop with the topic “Encouraging Governance of Extractive Industries in a Transparent and Accountable” and held in NTB became one of the joint efforts of SOMASI, PWYP, and Article 33 which was also supported by the NTB Provincial Government. The purpose of this workshop is to increase the transparency and accountability of revenue and management of regional revenue from extractive industry output in the NTB region. SOMASI supports the contextualization of EITI as a global initiative to optimize state/regional revenue, prevent leakage of corruption, and increase CSO participation in the general mining process. This activity becomes part of the dissemination of the results of the local revenue (revenue sharing fund-DBH) study from the extractive industries in West Lombok and West Sumbawa regencies in 2013 – 2014 which resulted in a CSO Forum for transparency and accountability of the extractive industries in West Nusa Tenggara.
