Implementation Status and Key Decisions
Implementation Status: The total grant amount for the recipient executed component of this activity was USD 0.35 million, out of which an amount of USD 0.095 million has already been committed towards grant activities such as the creation of an EITI website, staff salaries, and operational costs. An additional amount of USD 0.20 million, which is towards the procurement of a firm for reconciliation, is scheduled to be committed soon.
1. With strong support from the World bank's country office in Iraq, the base of operations has now been moved to Baghdad. Learning from past lessons that the National IEITI Secretariat has low implementation capacity, it was observed that day-to-day support and advice would be required for grant implementation. Therefore, a co-Task Team Leader (TTL) was appointed from the World Bank's country office in Baghdad, and other support such as procurement and financial management will also be provided by colleagues from the World Bank's Baghdad office.
2. The proposal for mainstreaming EITI in Iraq to address low implementation capacity issues has been discussed with other potential
donors. The Embassy of U.K, DFID, and USAID have expressed interest in potentially supporting this initiative.

A. A Brief History and Context of EITI Implementation in Iraq
1. The World Bank Group has been supporting the implementation of EITI in Iraq (IEITI) since the country
joined the initiative in 2008. This has been achieved by providing Technical Assistance, policy guidance and
funding (through the erstwhile EITI Multi-Donor Trust Fund) to ensure that internal budget constraints due to the
post-war and reconstruction situation would not impede EITI implementation. Previous World Bank projects
supporting EITI in Iraq are (i) “Iraq: Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative Implementation (P117511)”
which was a recipient executed grant given to the Ministry of Electricity as the implementing agency; and (ii)
“Iraq Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (P118292)” , which was a World Bank executed technical
