sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

Marc Choyt recounts a series of events in June 2006 as he goes back to the birth of the ethical jewelry movement.

In present day Ulaanbaatar, the United Nations and its partners are doing their part by launching a $60 million initiative to support artisanal and small-scale miners in Mongolia and the Philippines to access markets for responsible gold, as well as to move to mercury-free mining and processing.

Finish old projects before starting new ones. That’s the advice from Ishmael Ackah, following a review of the Development Plans of three district assemblies around Ghana’s petroleum producing area.

It is not surprising then that in his other study Ackah finds a mismatch between the use of oil revenue and the objectives of the Ghana Shared Growth and Development Agenda 

The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) has found that the recycling of cobalt and lithium from old products and infrastructure is too low to forestall predicted metal shortfalls.

And Oil, Gas and Energy Law Intelligence calls for contributions to its special issue on Natural Gas Pipeline Construction and Regulation.

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