sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

NRGI and the World Resources Institute have ideas for how to make the upcoming Open Government Partnership Global Summit a milestone for contract transparency and environmental disclosure in natural resources.

Tommy Morrison has created an interactive map that allows the user to view

  • the leases owned by some of the biggest leaseholders in the Gulf of Mexico
  • which leases produced oil and/or gas in 2014, 2015, and 2016, and how much
  • all the owners of a lease by percentage, and
  • the royalty rate on the lease

Thabit Jacobs shares two papers on Land and Extractive Resources in Tanzania.

Thomas Lassourd and his colleagues at NRGI have recommendations for moving DR Congo's mining reform forward. (It's in French. English coming soon)

Also with DR Congo in the background, George Lwanda defends the conflict minerals provision of the Dodd-Frank Act.

In the final DRC-related post, EITI summarizes ways in which the EITI's mainstreaming agenda can be implemented at country level.

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