Weekly GOXI: Cameras in Latin America-Holidays in Mozambique-Land resettlement in India-Jobs-More...


A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

We have seen cameras in Asia and the Americas, even Europe. But we have not seen photos from those regions on PHOTOSHARE. Or perhaps there are no major extractive industries issues in, say, Latin America....As the deadline approaches, let's see a diversity of photographs. So take your camera and click. Show us your issues-good, bad, ugly, show it all.

Mozambique is a great place for a holiday, especially if you're a mining company. In response to SAIIA's post questioning the relevance of EITI in Mozambique, EITI's Edmund Rich makes a forceful argument on the real causes of sub-optimal resource revenues for Mozambique. What do you think? Share your thoughts by contributing to the thread. And if you plan to attend the EITI Global Conference in Sydney next month, expect lively debates.

What's happening on land resettlement in India? Kinnari Bhatt wants to know.

Education! Education! Education! That's Jules Mulya's response to Isabelle Ramdoo's note on Africa's industrialization imperative.

Jules has more to say, and he says it with pictures. What do YOU have to say?

And news beyond GOXI ranges from bitcoins to China's failed mining deals to the EU's new moves towards transparency.


Browse some of the pictures so far submitted to GOXI Photo Share (and a chance to win a DSLR camera.) If you have already submitted pictures that you intended for the competition, please make sure you tag them as "PhotoCompetition" to be eligible.

Featured organization - Oil for Development (OfD)

The OfD program provides assistance to developing countries, upon their request, in their efforts to manage petroleum resources. The program assists countries through resource management, revenue management, and environmental management. Established in 2005 by the Government of Norway, the program unites the efforts of a range of different Norwegian governmental institutions, representing diverse skills and expertise. The Steering Committee for OfD consists of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (chair), the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy, the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Environment. The Secretariat resides in Norad (the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation). With an increased focus on revenue management and environmental management, OfD has broadened its theme in recent years. The program currently cooperates with 20 countries. The core countries are Angola, Bolivia, Ghana, Mozambique, Sudan, South Sudan, Timor Leste, and Uganda.
