This policy paper recommends that Lebanon should join the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI). The EITI can benefit Lebanon by providing transparency in Lebanon’s industrial sector, which serves the public interest. It further could improve Lebanon’s economy and accountability by empowering communities and forming a relationship between government and civil society. The EITI also can help in building a trustworthy reputation for Lebanon, making Lebanon an appealing environment for investors.
