sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

Happy New Year! What did the World Bank Group do in extractives in 2015 and what's ahead for 2016? Michael Jarvis shares the annual report.

The United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network, in partnership with the Natural Resource Governance Institute, the Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment, and the World Bank presents a free Massive Open Online Course on Natural Resources for Sustainable Development.

The Alliance for Responsible Mining (ARM) shares its book on artisanal gold mining in Burkina Faso, Mali, and Senegal.

It’s that time of the year when budgets kick in. For oil-exporters, such as Ghana, it’s an uncertain time as prices continue to drop. But what if you’re an exporter but net importer? The Public Interest and Accountability Committee of the country’s Parliament held a roundtable to discuss the impact of falling prices on the 2016 budget.

These and more jobsblogsphotosvideos, and discussions.

Featured GOXIan - Caitlin Corrigan

Caitlin Corrigan is a PhD candidate at the University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate School of Public and International Affairs and a researcher working with the Ford Institute for Human Security. She is broadly interested in natural resource governance in Africa, both in terms of extractive industries and wildlife conservation. She has recently conducted research in South Africa and Botswana on corporate social responsibility (CSR) aimed at community development for gold and diamond mining companies. Caitlin’s doctoral dissertation speaks to this subject by examining how various national and local institutions play a role in CSR decision making processes in Southern Africa.

She recently co-authored an article on the ‘Governance of Hydraulic Fracturing in Southern Africa’ and is beginning a new project examining the effectiveness of anti-poaching initiatives in areas of weak governance in Africa. She has also published specifically on transparency in the extractive industries, authoring an article on the effects of the Extractive Industries Transparency initiative (EITI).  Currently, she is updating and expanding this research as a consultant for the ONE Campaign in an effort to promote revenue transparency and accountability in the US and abroad. Caitlin is interested in continuing to conduct academic and policy relevant research on governance and transparency in the extractive industries, mining in particular, and more broadly on the interaction between societal outcomes and the use of natural resources.
