sharing in governance of extractive industries
Do you have a view on sharing benefits from infrastructure and natural resource projects? Who should get what? Why? When? How?
TELL THE WORLD.
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:
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:
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!
How to Participate:
Submissions are open from 22 April - 12 May, 2015.
Videos may be up to 100 MB in size and can be in .mov, .mp4, .mpg, .avi, .wmv, .3gp, and .3g2 file formats. Include your name, name of organization, name of project, and the location of the project.
So get started!
Rules and Eligibility Criteria:
IFC is committed to the concept of benefit sharing between large projects and the host governments and communities where they work. This video gives communities an opportunity to talk about how these partnerships can work. The IFC paper “The Art and Science of Benefit Sharing” is available here.
