sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

Does it matter whether a community liaison officer is male or female? A new research project aims to find out.

But how do you change a system that is gender-blind? Publish What You Pay (PWYP), in its new research, calls for making disparities more visible and systematically analyzing gender issues and acting on them.

While the Centre for Natural Resource Governance (CNRG) has held a gender and extractives workshop with the women of Zimbabwe's Mutoko District about the legacy of granite mining.

Also in Zimbabwe, Mukasiri Sibanda calls for mining agreements to be made public to enable citizens scrutinize the fairness of the deals.

Armenia has taken a big step in that direction of transparency. As mining becomes the fastest-growing sector of the country's economy, the public can now gain more insight into the sector through Armenia's first EITI report.

Meanwhile, Indonesia is making bold moves towards systematic disclosure of EITI information. Here are six ways in which the fourth most populous country is "paving the way for more open, timely and reliable disclosure of its extractive industries data," EITI reports.

Please note: The authors of a consultative draft on mapping the renewable energy sector to the sustainable development ... will appreciate your input.

Featured GOXIan - Bernard Nsanzimana

Beside experience in teaching and research in the areas of tourism and hospitality, Bernard Nsanzimana got interested in extractive industries around 2012 when the mining sector was in transition from informal to formal. Given the male dominance in the sector, he joined efforts with other activists and co-founded the Rwanda Women In/And Mining Organization (WIAMO). Since 2017, he has been serving as a part-time consultant under a UK (DfID) funded project - Sustainable Development of Mining in Rwanda (SDMR) Program of the Rwanda Mines, Petroleum and Gas Board (RMB), as Governance Adviser and Social Inclusion Expert.

Nsanzimana also teaches mining law at the School of Geology and Mining of the University of Rwanda. In addition, he manages a law firm, Doctrina Law Chambers, with clients operating in various areas of businesses including manufacturing, commerce, education, mining and quarry. He has embarked on pursuing a PhD program in business law, with more interest in the extractive industries law.
