Environmental and Social Conflict Prevention in Extractives

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

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

One goal of this Community 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 also want to provide a network and space for ideas from a global community of practitioners working on similar issues.

The group is designed to share experiences, raise awareness and improve skills and practice for preventing and resolving environmental conflict in the extractive sector, and improving environmental governance of the sector. This includes efforts to ensure more effective and meaningful participation, communication, transparency, and accountability in the extractive sector, to prevent adverse social, human rights and environmental impacts.

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

Please refer to the FAQ Page for more information on how to contribute and how to start discussions on this Community's space.
