sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

But how do we get there? Michael Jarvis comments on the launch of Kellogg Innovation Network's initiative for the Mining Company of the Future, with emphasis on the matter of implementation.

Meanwhile, the University of Queensland announces a new graduate program to help meet the changing professional training needs of the extractive resources sector.

As international arbitration grows as a preferred method of resolving disputes between international parties, how diverse is the sector? Submit your insights to TDM.

As *Nigeriia's budget comes under pressure from the falling oil price, what does it say about overall governance of the sector. Consider that after 56 years of production started, the country's Excess Crude Account and Sovereign Wealth Fund hold a combined $5.5 billion, the equivalent of 9 percent of government oil revenues in 2014 alone, NNRC reports

And in India, the Goa Foundation is pushing for a mineral fund for the state of Goa--with certain provisions.

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

Finally, HAPPY HOLIDAYS to you! Your Weekly GOXI will take a holiday too and return in 2015.
