sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

"What’s good for women is good for business and for society," Sarah Busque says, based on research that shows companies with more women at the top may be better practitioners of... (CSR).

Politicians and bureaucrats, perhaps not so much. Arguing that those two groups are the biggest risk, Rahul Basu makes a case for and outlines measures for ensuring zero loss from citizens' mineral wealth.

But first there must be wealth to be protected. Will Tullow's Turkana project  in Kenya happen? Openoil's model raises questions about the project's economics under the current scenario.

Governments will play a leading role in the transition from coal to clean energy, bearing the cost of physical closure of mines and labor transition programs, even when coal mines are privately owned. Canada, the United Kingdom, and the World Bank are collaborating to help countries accelerate that transition and manage the associated socioeconomic impacts, which will be concentrated in Asia.

From Rwanda, the Sustainable Development of Mining in Rwanda (SDMR) programme shares lessons from supporting the formalization of artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM).

Meanwhile, small-scale gold millers in Zimbabwe want to see urgent reforms.

The Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) wants your comments on its open data efforts by 7 January.

January 7 is also when your Weekly GOXI will be back. Until then, we wish you and yours the very best . See you in 2019!
