This briefing focuses on steps that the Indonesian government can take to bolster existing efforts to promote transparency and greater government-citizen dialogue around natural resources. It includes a discussion of mechanisms to increase the transparency of licensing processes (especially in the mining sector), the benefits that Indonesians could gain from public disclosure of petroleum and mining contracts, the elements of the new and stricter EITI Standard that Indonesia will have to implement beginning in 2015, the benefits that rigorous implementation can confer on Indonesia, and the importance of closer communication and coordination between national and subnational governments around extractive-sector management.
