sharing in governance of extractive industries

Let your voice be heard -Submit a video by 12 May, 2015

Do you have a view on sharing benefits from infrastructure and natural resource projects? Who should get what? Why? When? How?



The International Finance Corporation (IFC) is working with GOXI to gather diverse voices on “Sharing Benefits in the Extractives and Infrastructure Sectors.”  These video clips will then be edited and then shown at both an IFC in-person gathering and posted on IFC website.

To make your voice heard, shoot and submit a 60-second video about benefits shared by extractives (oil, gas, mining) or infrastructure (power, transportation, water, utilities) projects with local communities.

The top videos will be shown to about 200 leaders from these sectors.  

Who Can Participate and Why?

Any group (formal or informal) that works with communities impacted by an extractives or infrastructure project. By submitting a video you can get:

  1. The chance for your voice to be heard by thousands of people working in the industry
  2. The chance to win one of many prizes
  • Selected videos will be featured at an upcoming IFC in-person gathering, and highlighted online on the IFC and GOXI websites.
  • Selected videos will receive copies of IFC’s acclaimed community engagement handbooks.

5 people to be randomly selected from those that submit a video will receive a copy of Tom Burgis’ book, The Looting Machine

What to do?

Use your cell phone or a video camera to shoot a clip of no more than 60 seconds.  The short video should include the following:

  • Your name and the community and country you come from 
  • An answer to the question: How should communities and companies work to best share benefits from large extractives and infrastructure projects?

The style of the video is entirely up to you.  It could be just you talking to the camera or it could illustrate something you consider to be a good or bad example.

So get creative!
