Extractives Global Programmatic Support (EGPS)
Multi-Donor Trust Fund

The Extractives Global Programmatic Support (EGPS) Multi-Donor Trust Fund aims to support resource-rich developing nations in the governance of their oil, gas and mineral resources so they are used sustainably and transparently to reduce poverty and boost sustainable economic growth.   

To achieve this objective, the EGPS provides support for programs ranging from transparency and governance, to legal and regulatory reform, local economic diversification, institutional strengthening and social and environmental sustainability. 

Support for similar programs was previously provided through funding mechanisms such as the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative Multi-Donor Trust Fund (EITI MDTF) and the Extractive Industries Technical Advisory Facility (EI-TAF); both closed at the end of 2015. 

The EGPS brings support for strengthening governance and sustainability in the oil, gas and mining sectors into one funding vehicle so that programs are more holistic in nature and have greater impact along the entire extractive industries value chain.

The EGPS supports comprehensive programs that focus on four components, which can be selected and customized as needed and relevant to each country’s circumstances.

Component 1: Transparency and Governance

  • Improve revenue administration and revenue management practices
  • Empower governments to develop evidence-based decision making processes
  • Strengthen civil society capacity to actively participate in decisions related to national mineral resources

Component 2: Legal and Regulatory

  • Establish and strengthen frameworks to ensure the fiscal and economic sustainability of oil, gas and mining projects
  • Strengthen government capacity to apply good practices when structuring economic development models and administering concessions

Component 3: Local Economic Diversification

  • Assist with identification, design, and implementation of local content policies to boost shared benefits, equitable economic diversification, and local employment

Component 4: Institutional Strengthening and Social and Environmental Sustainability

  • Increase benefit sharing with local communities that neighbor extractives projects
  • Strengthen government capacity to manage complexity and volatility of the sector
  • Improve social and economic performance of the private sector operating in the extractives sector
  • Prepare contingency plans related to impacts of extractives projects
