Governance document & work plan

ATI Steering Committee

All activities of the Addis Tax Initiative (ATI) are overseen by the ATI Steering Committee, which provides strategic guidance and monitors the progress made towards reaching the goals defined in the ATI Declaration 2025. The ATI Steering Committee is responsible for pursuing the objectives of the Addis Tax Initiative. This includes ensuring that the monitoring and reporting on the ATI commitments are on track, cooperating closely with the Secretariat of the ATI, consulting with the ATI members, and approving the annual monitoring report.

The ATI Steering Committee consists of representatives of three development partners and of three partner countries. It is headed by two co-chairs, with one co-chair from a development partner and the other from a partner country. The Steering Committee members serve for one year, one time renewable. Currently, ATI Steering Committee consists of representatives from the following countries:

  • European Commission
  • Italy
  • Kenya
  • Madagascar
  • Sierra Leone
  • United Kingdom

The ATI Steering Committee meets virtually and on an ad-hoc basis. If necessary, other ATI member countries or supporting organisations can participate as observers. To ensure transparency, minutes are taken at all meetings and provided to all ATI members.

ATI Secretariat

The ATI Secretariat is facilitated by the International Tax Compact (ITC), which is based in Bonn, Germany. As such, the ITC is responsible for all activities, including the support of the ATI Steering Committee, the outreach to potential new members, the support of ATI members and the monitoring of the ATI commitments.
