Procurement Monitoring in the Mining Province of Mongolia

Posted on September 25, 2012 at 13:49 1 Comment

Last week, we spent some days in the Umnugobi province of Mongolia. Umnugobi (UG) is in South Gobi where two of the biggest mines of Mongolia are, Oyu Tolgoi and Tavan Tolgoi.  The size of these two mines is mind-staggering, with roughly a trillion dollars in estimated reserves. By 2016, mining is expected to contribute more than half of Mongolia’s GDP and 95 percent of its exports.…


How to monitor every single contract?

Posted on July 27, 2012 at 7:36 0 Comments

I had an ‘aha moment’ the other day about the number of contracts that CSOs are supposed to monitor in a country like the Philippines. Read more about it on Pro-Act: http://pro-act.org/profiles/blogs/how-to-monitor-every-single-contract.

What is next on the road to open contracting?

Posted on July 22, 2012 at 5:01 0 Comments

This is a question that I have been pondering about while I am meeting partners working on open contracting (i.e. contract transparency and monitoring) in the Philippines. I share some of my questions on pro-act. http://pro-act.org/profiles/blogs/what-is-next-on-the-road-to-open-contracting. I believe these questions are also relevant for EI. I would love to hear your insights!…


The power of communities - monitoring EI in Asia

Posted on July 17, 2012 at 16:45 3 Comments

I learned today about 5 fascinating community monitoring projects in Asia. The projects show the power of communities to monitor oil and mining projects and to work with local authorities and companies to achieve change.

I am at the regional case conference of ANSA EAP on community score cards in extractive industries. The meeting brought together CSOs from Indonesia,…

The consultations on Ghana's preparation for oil and gas has been instnsive recently. Following civil society regional forums on the policies and legal frameworks being developed by government for the petroleum sector, the Civil society platform on oil and gas which I coordinate held a 'citizens summit on oil and gas on 24th June 2010 which brought together more than 250 participants from civil society, government, parliament and the media to consolidate CSO positions for presentation to government and parliament ahead of the final bills that will be laid before parliament by government. The citizens summit ended with a communique which was presented to the Ministers of Energy and Finance and also to teh wider Ghanaian citizens through a press conference held on 30th June 2010. Now we are doing outreach in the regions explaining the contenst of the communique to the general public to enable them participate in the debate on the petroleum related bills when they are finally laid before parliament. The Minister of Energy and the Deputy Minister of Finance attended the summit.
The world bank, oxfam america and friedrich ebert foundation and IBIS sponsored the summit.

Dear Kathrin,

That is exactly what I am trying to do. I agree with you that a group of Journalists added in the GOXI platform is the best way forward. However you could advise me how that group could be added. Already I have invited three two Journalists as my friends in my GOXI pages including my Editor Paul Busharizi. The other issue is that I have some information that I would like or try to share with the group about EI but that information is only in my GOXI page. How can I make that information accessible by all GOXI members? Already three articles are are on my page. Could you also advise me on how to create this EI Media group?
