sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

Follow the money. The EI Academy lays out the three roles money plays in negotiations (from the community's perspective): costs of negotiation, financial benefits, and basic money management.

The latest OGEL Journal special addresses the various challenges and changes at work in dispute resolution in Latin America.

In response to Semkae Kilonzo's post, Camillus Kassala says yes extractives can help end poverty in Tanzania but one has to be careful not to pour water into a basket.

The Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment (CCSI) presents a regulatory and operational framework to unlock the value of Associated Petroleum Gas (APG) that is currently wasted.

CCSI has also joined forces with The World Economic Forum and United Nations Development Programme to release a new report: Mapping Mining and the Sustainable Development Goals: An Atlas.

Finally, CCSI shares a report, in collaboration with Olle Östensson, on "a thorough examination of employment tied to mining and agricultural investments."

NOTE: GOXI has a new group on Environmental Governance of the Mining Sector, to facilitate discussion on the subject from a rights-based approach.

These and more jobs, blogs, photos, videos, and discussions.
