sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

Follow the Money--The World Bank has updated its visual tool for explaining financial systems, areas of corruption risk, and points of possible intervention, among other uses.

Also from the World Bank, The Extractive Industries Sector: Essentials for Economists, Public Finance Professionals, and Policy Makers, has now been translated to Chinese, French, and Spanish.

In the spirit of following the money, Publish What You Pay (PWYP) and the Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI) call for more transparency in commodity trading, on the occasion of the Anti-Corruption Summit. And PWYP welcomes Australia's decision to implement the EITI.

Varsha Venugopal too shares NRGI's new research on the "Peruvian Disease"--the effects of a booming
public sector on the local economy.

Meanwhile, Emily Greenspan reports on extreme pollution in oil Block 192 in the northern Peruvian Amazon.

Next door, Juan D. Gutiérrez-Rodríguez is presenting his doctoral research on the relationship between abundance & dependence of resource revenues and the quality of public investment management at the subnational level in Colombia. 

And Oil, Gas and Energy Law Intelligence (OGEL) invites you to submit a paper for a special issue on "Oil and Gas Law and Policy in West Africa."

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