sharing in governance of extractive industries
I wanted to remind you of our sixth annual Executive Training on Extractive Industries and Sustainable Development, organized by us at the Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment (CCSI) at Columbia University. The course, which will take place at Columbia University in New York City, from June 4 to 15, 2018, is an interdisciplinary executive level training course for public sector officials from resource-rich developing countries and representatives of local civil society organizations, whose responsibilities relate to the development or management of the extractive industries sector. A select number of representatives from the private sector and development agencies may also be admitted. The course will cover cross-cutting themes, such as the economics and geopolitics of extractive industries, legal and fiscal frameworks, leveraging investments through industrial policies and infrastructure development, revenue management and planning, local community development, and environmental protection, including planning for and managing the impacts of climate change. The goal of the course is to build the skills necessary to support the responsible development of countries’ extractive industries sector and to facilitate knowledge sharing across the different government departments and ministries involved in the sector, as well as among the different countries represented at the course.
Applications for admission are evaluated on a rolling basis - only a few spots left - hurry up!
