sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

To really harness oil and gas resources for sustainable development, you need targets, targets such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). That's exactly what this report by the UNDP, the IFC, and IPIECA aims to do. See how the oil and gas industry can contribute to all 17 SDGs.

To do all that, you also need transparency. To help translate increased transparency to development results, the Liberia Extractive Industry Transparency Initiative (LEITI), with the support of GIZ, has turned to another resource abundant in Africa: youth.

And Publish What You Pay Indonesia suggests that the slight decline in coal production in that country is more of a response to decline in market prices than the government enforcing its own policy on the restriction and reduction of coal production--which it should!--according to PWYP.

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