sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI 

Should the State play a guiding role in a nation’s upstream petroleum sector? Should fracking be allowed? Can and should coal mining be “saved” as an industry? With these and other questions ranging from conflict prevention to criminal proceedings, Daniel Gilbert interviews Professor Kurt Mills at wintery University of Dundee. 

As global prices rise, Indonesia's coal producers will produce more. As they produce more, the cost to Indonesia will rise in terms such as negative environmental impact in the midst of governance weaknesses. This, according to Publish What You Pay (PWYP) Indonesia. As PWYP Indonesia’s mining governance researcher, Rizky Ananda, put its, "Raising production target without making any improvements on the monitoring side is like 'opening the taps' of coal exploitation.

Featured member - Anne Johnson

Anne Johnson is a professor of Mining Engineering with a constructive critical focus on issues related to sustainability at the Robert M. Buchanan Department of Mining at Queen's University in Ontario, Canada.

She explores intercultural competence as a tool for mitigating social risk. In particular, she is interested in the potential for resource projects to contribute to the well-being and resilience of communities, to the revitalization of cultures recovering from the impacts of colonization and, in the Canadian context, to the national objective of Reconciliation. Her teaching challenges engineering students to consider questions of governance and inequitable distribution of impacts and benefits and how they might incorporate values of sustainability and equity into their own practice to move these agendas forward.
