sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

It's been more than two weeks already, and we hope your year has started well. GOXI has been as active as ever over the holidays, with several posts by EITI and by Mining in Malawi. Also, Lisa Sachs shares a memo to the US Government on the National Action Plan on responsible business conduct, Janne Kaiser shares the Encyclopedia of Gender and Mining, Audrey Cash shares several stories, including two on the impact of the free falling oil price, and Don Hubert takes a hard look at issues arising in using economic modeling to improve extractive sector governance. In addition, Eva Kirch alerts you to an upcoming public consultation on ICMM's updated Indigenous Peoples & Mining Good Practice Guide.

These and more blogs, photos, videos and discussions on GOXI.
