sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

"How do you give speeches about good governance when soldiers are dying and the country is increasingly occupied?," asks EITI's Jonas Moberg. As he reports, much in Ukraine remains about energy, hence the need for reforms. 

"Why is workplace safety still overlooked in developing countries?," asks Olfa Hamdi.

And why is a nuclear physics engineer visiting Malawi's Kayelekera Uranium Mine to collect water samples and to provide feedback on radiation monitoring? Mining in Malawi explains.

Fishing is not exactly like drilling, but Mauritania has good reasons to include the sector in its EITI implementation. Saidou Arji tells us more.

As the world evolves, Ghanaians can see how events affects their country's oil revenue, and therefore budget, thanks to this tool. Also in Ghana, small-scale miners are calling a for a ministry to oversee their activities.

The latest OGEL journal looks at the Polish energy sector which is currently undergoing substantial change.

Remember:  Paul Cisneros is looking for people with experience in conflict management in the mining industry, especially experience in South America.
