sharing in governance of extractive industries
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.
