sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI 

Even through the holidays, GOXI stayed busy.

In a journal article, Rauno Sairinen and co-authors analyze the case of the Talvivaara mine and water pollution in Finland

In a new book, Public Brainpower,  20 contributors explore the strengths and weaknesses of big ideas through empirical case studies of 18 oil and gas-producing countries: Algeria, Angola, Azerbaijan, Canada, Colombia, Egypt, Iraq, Kazakhstan, Libya, the Netherlands, Nigeria, Norway, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, the UK and Venezuela. 

Publish What You Pay announces that the Consensus Building Institute will facilitate an independent review of civil society constituency guidelines in the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI). 

From the EITI itself, an annual message from the Chair

And Mukasiri Sibanda shares issues on which Zimbabwean civil society should urgently engage government before the transition window of opportunity snaps shut. 

Remember: On January 31, UNDP, IFC, and IPIECA will host a webinar presenting their joint report - Mapping the oil and gas industry to Sustainable Development Goals - An Atlas.
