sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

From the Zimbabwe Chamber of Mines' 2019 Annual Mining Conference, Mukasiri Sibanda reports that technology is set to drive platinum production growth, weakening employment linkages.

In week 4 of NEW TECH, NEW DEAL, Wendy Tyrrell addresses how to make up for such losses.

For instance, Tyrrell asks, should companies increase their community investment activities? Should governments establish development funds for local communities? Should governments and companies negotiate shared infrastructure like roads, water supply, or Internet? Read more about economic development and social progress: policies for impact.

Meanwhile, David Noko sums up last week's discussion so far and invites you to add to it.

Remember: all discussions remain open, so you can still contribute to this and all discussions from previous weeks.


Also on GOXI this week....

From opacity to transparency, The Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) reveals its new visual identity.

But what lessons can we draw from the respective EITI disclosures of Guinea and the Democratic Republic of Congo? Thomas Lassourd finds out.

Still in Congo, what is the impact of due diligence programmes on social, environmental and human rights indicators in the eastern part of the country.

Jeff Geipel reports that the Mining Local Procurement Reporting Mechanism is now available en español.

And Kash Sirinanda invites you to Vancouver for the Mines & Technology conference.

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