RemTrack, an application developed by civil society organisations to enhance transparency in Nigeria’s extractive industry, will be launched on December 3.

The application was designed to track the remediation of issues contained in the annual audit reports of the Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI).

RemTrack was designed and developed by OrderPaper Advocacy Initiative in collaboration with the Civil Society Steering Committee (CSSC) of NEITI.

It will be presented to the public on December 3 in Lagos to mark the formal commencement of public engagement with the tool.

The public presentation will be performed by Waziri Adio, executive secretary of NEITI.

“RemTrack is a global innovation being the first of its kind throughout the world conceived to foster the implementation of the Extractives Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) process in Nigeria,” the organisers said in a statement.

“The app clearly aligns with the drive of the global body to encourage the use of data and technology to promote the key objectives of transparency and accountability in the extractives sector of all implementing countries.

“The ultimate objective of the RemTrack intervention is to stimulate the resolution of pending remedial issues for the sake of ensuring that the benefits of Nigeria’s huge extractives resources impact positively on the lives and living conditions of citizens.”

Stakeholders from companies, civil society, the media and the development community are expected to be at the event.
