sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

How can you measure something intangible such as sustainability? How can you gauge your actions? Alexandra Truchot shares some thoughts. 

In a recently-released report, the Intergovernmental Forum (IGF) shows how crowdfunding can be one form of innovation for mining companies, with lessons from Canada. 

And Cinderella Freifrau von Dungern invites you to take a survey for a joint project by GIZ, DFID, and CCCMC on Sustainable Mining Action Plan.
