sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI 

Robert Pitman discusses Total's embrace of contract transparency as part of an overall trend "toward disclosure of payments, contracts and other information critical for those in developing countries seeking to hold companies and governments to account."

In the spirit of holding companies and governments to account, Publish What You Pay (PWYP) Indonesia gives an NGO's view of that country's extractive industries. 

Still on accountability, is it justified for Zimbabwe to give big miners incentives to export raw minerals? Mukasiri Sibanda discusses.

Jasmin Blessing and Sarah Daitch announce a new online course on environmental security by UN Environment in partnership with the Environmental Law Institute, the Earth Institute at Columbia University, Duke University, the University of California at Irvine, and United Nations Development Programme. 

Jasmin Blessing also recaps a webinar that sought to answer the question, "Can participatory environmental monitoring committees empower citizens to shape decision-making?" (También disponible en español)
