sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

The 2019 Open Government Partnership (OGP) Global Report "demonstrates that improved transparency leads to better economic results, including increased foreign direct investment inflows and better credit ratings," according to the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), highlighting the synergies between OGP and EITI. 

Also, EITI signals three things to look out for at the 2019 EITI Global Conference in Paris: 1) Open data as the norm; 2) Building trust as the bedrock; and 3) demonstrating relevance for the global agenda.

Jeff Geipel shares a piece (en français) about efforts to promote  use of the Mining Local Procurement Reporting Mechanism (LPRM) in West Africa.

Erik Ramos invites you to join him and others for a webinar on gender gaps & mining.

Do you work on gemstones in East and Southern Africa? Do you have an innovative idea to market gemstones? Then make a pitch.

Do you have something to say about petroleum development in Guyana? Then submit a paper to the Oil, Gas & Energy Law (OGEL).

And Perrine Toledano wraps up the final discussion in the GOXI series, NEW TECH, NEW DEAL. Thank you all for your contributions. Remember: All discussions remain open, so you can still contribute to this and all discussions from previous weeks.
