sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

How do you go about sourcing gold from artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) in a responsible way? Extractives and Development has a report on that.

What's the potential for increasing local content in mining in West Africa?  The Extractives and Development program has just released a report on that too.

Few rich countries properly manage their extractive resources, Jasmin Blessing extracts from the 2017 Resource Governance Index.

Such improper management can result in countries losing billions of dollars worth of their natural resource wealth. Publish What You Pay Canada has some ideas for mechanisms and policies that can safeguard critical revenues.

Jasmin Blessing also reports that Fiji has no immediate plans for deep sea mining.

Nina Collins reports on a symposium by Oxfam Australia and the Melbourne Business School on gender in the extractive industries.

In this paper, Charles Akong  presents a matrix systematically analyzing possible scenarios in the way of implementing the Africa Mining Vision.

Bubelwa Kaiza shares a preliminary analysis of Tanzania's 7th EITI report while Daniel Gilbert and Antipas Massawe discuss the latest twist in the saga between that country and Acacia Mining.

These and more jobs, blogs, photos, videos, and discussions are on GOXI.
