sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

Congratulations to Trinidad and Tobago for becoming EITI Compliant!

Timor Leste, another compliant country declares, "Transparency is now a baseline for us," as the country seeks to promote investment in the extractives sector. 

Meanwhile, a new report supported by the Carter Center and shared by Colin Robertson says, "Despite the DRC's much vaunted decision to publish all mining contracts, in reality, dozens of these documents remain unpublished."

This week, Thomas Lassourd and David Manley of the Natural Resource Governance Institute explain 10 consequences of the commodity crash for resource-rich countries. 

One country that's resource-rich is Azerbaijan, one country that just can't seem to diversify away from natural resources. Why?

Remember: Oil, Gas & Energy Law Journal is calling for papers on international taxation in the energy sector.
