Feature Speaker  

Marinke van Riet

Ms. Marinke van Riet

Marinke van Riet joined the civil society movement Publish What You Pay (PWYP) in August 2011 to take up the post of International Director based in London. She led a strategy development process for the coalition which resulted in the adoption of Vision 20/20 and includes a new direction plus a new governance system. Prior to joining PWYP, Marinke worked at Marie Stopes International in Madagascar and Ghana as well as in DRC, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Mali, Malawi, Uganda and Kenya, working for a microfinance institution and for a network focusing on pro-poor transport policies and practices. Her interest in natural resource governance stems from these cumulative experiences in Africa as in her view, these countries wouldn’t be poor if they only managed their natural wealth reasonably and equitably. Marinke is a Dutch citizen and lives in London.  Marinke is also a member of the EITI international board on behalf of the CSO constituency.
