sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

As Norway leads the way in "systematic disclosure" of payments to satisfy various transparency regimes, Publish What You Pay UK tests UK companies for variances in their disclosures to EITI and to their government.

Mukasiri Sibanda can see the light in the future of mining governance in Zimbabwe. Still, he treads lightly. "If government is serious about fighting corruption and to mobilise resources to deliver quality health and education services," he says, "a strong dosage of contract transparency is a necessity."

But Ana Maria Aranibar laments the poor state of women in mining in western Bolivia-- for instance, working unending hours at back-breaking tasks and receiving no recognition, earning low daily wages while men earn higher weekly wages, and enduring other forms of discrimination that keep them poor.

James McQuilken reports on one type of effort to help change the situation of women in artisanal and small-scale mining by elevating their voices and visions

In this article, Andre Xavier and colleagues at the University of British Columbia propose a new framework to evaluate the degree and extent of community involvement in participatory water management programs. 

And Alice Powell wraps up the month in gender & extractives news.
