sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

The Mining Security Working Group has produced a white paper that provides guidance for developing a security management plan in line with the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights and other best practices. 

Francis Xavier Dery Tuokuu too shares a paper, on critical stakeholders' perceptions, experiences and competence in assuring the sustainable management of Ghana's major gold mines

EITI has more on Afghanistan's Transparency Portal that we shared a few weeks ago.

But following Uganda's decision to join EITI, Rene Roger Tissot hopes that more transparency actually leads to accountability.

From Zimbabwe, Simiso Mlevu sounds a warning about the damage to the water bodies that Penhalonga-Tsvingwe villagers claim is caused by two mining companies especially.

For such issues and others, the joint Swedish Environmental Protection Agency–UNDP Environmental Governance Programme EGP) has launched a free online course that integrates environmental, social, and human rights protection into governance of the mining sector.

And if you're attending PDAC 2019 in Toronto, Jeff Geipel invites you to a session on how the Mining Local Procurement Mechanism "can help mining companies, host country suppliers, communities and government to work together to increase the share of benefits that stay in host countries."

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