Environmental Governance and Conflict Prevention Community of Practice


Environmental Governance and Conflict Prevention Community of Practice

Welcome to the GOXI Community of Practice for Environmental Governance and Conflict Prevention in the Extractive Sector

Who are we?

Our group brings together members from across sectors around the world working on environmental governance for sustainable natural resource management, and members dedicated to preventing and resolving disputes and conflicts in the extractive sector.

What is our objective?

One goal is to ensure that natural resource wealth from the extractive industries is used to improve people’s lives and enhance development outcomes in line with the Sustainable Development Goals. We want to provide a network and space for ideas from a global community of practitioners working on similar issues that contributes to this.

What is our focus?

The group is designed to share knowledge, experiences, raise awareness and improve skills and practice for improving environmental governance of the sector and for preventing and resolving socio-environmental conflict in the extractive sector- We want to understand how to better prevent adverse social, human rights and environmental impacts and explore ways to sustain these approaches as part of public institutions. 

We encourage discussions, questions, and country examples that address the challenges and solutions for preventing socio-environmental conflict and improving governance of extractives. We welcome your input on topics or initiatives you would like to take forward.

Dear EGCP members,

Please find attached the agenda for the Stockholm Dialogue On the Nexus between Human Rights, Environmental Sustainability, and Conflict Prevention that will take place in Stockholm 12 June. 

This one-day Dialogue will seek to enhance our understanding of integrated approaches needed to manage natural resources for more sustainable and peaceful outcomes. We will explore how to tackle risks and opportunities in a manner that balances social, environmental, economic, human rights, and peace concerns and priorities, using the extractive sector as an example.

See the attachment for more information.

Dear EGCP members,

The Kwale Workshop on Environmental Governance of the Mining Sector Putting Policies into Practice will take place in Kwale Kenya from 15-17 May, 2018.

The workshop aims to bring together key stakeholders from the government, civil society and the private sectors in Kenya and Mozambique, who have a delegated role in environmental governance of the mining sector and have been addressing their challenges from different perspectives. The workshop focuses on the recent assessments for the mining sector, namely the Strategic environmental and social assessment (SESA) in Kenya and the Rule of Law in Public Administration (RoLPA) in Mozambique.

Please check out the workshop’s homepage for more information and for interesting background material.
