sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

A new report by the Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals, Metals and Sustainable Development (IGF) summarizes the main sustainability issues in the mining sector, discusses the dynamic relationship between public policy and sustainability standards, and provides a systematic analysis of 15 major sustainability initiatives in the mining sector.

How can government implement environmental policies in Ghana's gold mining sector? That is the question tackled by Francis Xavier Dery Tuokuu and his co-authors in this article.

And Catherine Picard takes you on the journey of gold.

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