sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

As the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) prepares to begin a new three-year term for its Board, the search is on for 10 new board members by the EITI Civil Society Constituency. Find out more.

26 out of 28 sub-Saharan African countries analyzed by the Natural Resource Governance Institute(NRGI) are failing to deliver the standards laid down in their laws on extractive industries. Read more about the implementation gap.

In 2019, the Public-Private Alliance for Responsible Minerals Trade (PPA) is exploring the potential to leverage small grants (~$20,000-$50,000) to support strategic interventions that can meaningfully transform capacity on key issues in the Great Lakes Region (GLR) of Central Africa. PPA now seeks expert and stakeholder insights on responsible minerals challenges and opportunities – tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold – in the region.

And under the auspices of the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) for The Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals, Metals and Sustainable Development (IGF), Tim Grice reviews policies and strategies to promote direct local employment in the mining sector.

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