sharing in governance of extractive industries
Despite the proliferation of community conflicts at mine sites, there is a dearth of documented, quantitative analyses for insights as to the factors contributing to such conflicts. Our study published in the Resources Policy Journal finds that quality and availability of water are drivers for water-related social conflicts with mining companies in Peru. However, other factors such as past conflicts and revenue payments to the sub-national level play an even bigger role. This paper originates from a 3-year research project funded by the Norges Bank Investment Management (NBIM) to assess whether institutional investors can better quantify water-related risks of their mining portfolios. Further findings and papers from this project can be found here and here.
