sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

A lot has been turned upside down ever since "The Bulldozer" moved onto Acacia Mining. Antipas Massawe and Daniel Gilbert contribute to the discussion about the Tanzanian president's rumble to reform his country's mineral laws.

What's in a word? Mulya Jules explains how saying enquête or etude can make a world of difference when you're trying to get information from people.

The Extractives and Development program shares a guideline on monitoring and evaluation of EITI implementation on the national level. The program also announces the launch of the Mining Local Procurement Mechanism.

Jasmin Blessing reports on a workshop in Mozambique by the Swedish EPA, Oxfam, and UNDP on Free Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) and also announces the coordination group of the Environmental Governance Program for the Mining Sector in Mozambique.  

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