Description

Disclosure of related data in mining industry at the license level
Commitment Start and End Date
September 1, 2018 – August 31, 2020
Lead implementing agency/actor State Committee of Industry, Energy and Subsoil Use of the Kyrgyz Republic
Commitment description
What is the public problem that the commitment will address? In accordance with the Resource Management Index 2017, important data at the license level is not published systematically and in full by the mining industry of the Kyrgyz Republic. Thus, supervisor bodies and citizens do not have enough data to ensure accountability of the government, local authorities and companies. The publication of insufficient data, especially in the field of environmental protection, is one of the reasons for the ongoing conflicts in areas of subsoil use between the local communities and mining companies.
What is the commitment? Ensuring regular publication of the mining industry relevant data at the license level with necessary detailed explanations.
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem? Systematic publication of the mining industry relevant data at the license level will assist the Kyrgyz Republic in:
1) Partial reduction of conflicts and distrust in areas of subsoil use.
2) Increasing capacity of parliamentarians and citizens to conduct official and public oversight of the state, local governments and companies.
3) Ensuring discussions between parliamentarians, civil sector and the government on evidence-based mining industry thus preventing populist decisions.
Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values? Transparency: Citizens will have access to key data of the mining industry

Citizen participation: Citizens will have the opportunity to exercise oversight, analysis and participation in decision-making on mining industry projects
