Information

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 members, 

The EGP had a very fruitful and productive Global Technical Workshop, SIDA Seminar on Human Rights and Environmental Sustainability: Why and How? in Stockholm, Sweden and a study visit to the mine in Garpenberg last week! We want to thank everyone for making it a successful event. 

We would also like to invite members who attended these events to post their pictures and any reflections about the workshop under the Contribute to the Global Technical Workshop 2016 thread.

You can also add a blog post about the mine visit where you share pictures and your thoughts on the tailing management system, environmental monitoring process, stakeholder engagement and how it compares with your country's environmental management system in the mining sector. More information on how to add a blog post can be found here.

You can also send me your pictures to this email address: envgovernanceprogramme@gmail.com and I will add them to our Workshop Page. 

Thank you for your continued GOXI participation! 

Best, 

Tiffany, EGMS Community Manager
