About this site

In many countries extractives data are becoming increasingly available from multiple sources: the World Bank, IMF, UNCTAD, ICTD datasets, EITI reports, national statistics and government reporting.

The Ghana extractives dashboard visualises for CSOs, journalists and policy makers the impact of extractives on the economy by providing visualizations and a macro level overview.

In the future, as more data becomes available, it could also provide granular detailed breakdowns of project activities.
