sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

Do you see new technologies and disruptive innovations reshaping the competitive dynamics in the mining sector? Will they fundamentally change the relationship between mining companies and their host communities, host countries?

We are launching a five-week online discussion that connects participants with leaders in policy, mining, technology and international development to discuss the impact of new technologies and disruptive innovations.

Aaron Cosbey kicks off the discussion with TRENDS AND IMPACTS#NewTechNewDeal

This consultation is hosted by the Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals, Metals and Sustainable Development (IGF) with the Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment (CCSI) and Mining Shared Vision (MSV), and in partnership with  GOXI.

AIso on GOXI this week....

Publish What You Pay UK and Natural Resource Governance Institute that when it comes to disclosing payments made to government entities in host countries, disaggregation is the name of the game.

But Daniel Daniel Mulé, suggests that companies are not making enough of the payments they should be making. He reports that “the IMF estimates that profit-shifting may deprive some countries of $200 billion annually. “ And he warns: “If you think profit-shifting sounds like smart business practice, think again”

Marc Choyt continues his critical look at the ethical jewelry ecosystem, this time, focusing on “a trade association that presents itself as a nonprofit.”

Sebastian Sahla shares a video that gives a troubling picture of Myanmar’s jade industry and calls for change.
