The National Oil and Gas Policy for Uganda, which the government finalized in 2008, explicitly directs the government to join the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI).[1] Objective 6 in the Policy mentions participation in EITI as one of the strategies Uganda will adopt to ensure collection of the right revenues from the oil industry.[2]

Uganda’s parliament passed a resolution reaffirming the need to join EITI in October 2011[1] but as of early 2013 the government had not yet taken concrete steps toward initiating the process necessary for Uganda's registration to and implementation of EITI.[2]
