sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

If you wanted to know if someone was a good neighbor, would you ask the person if he played loud music or ask the person's neighbors? That sums up the major aspect in which Tomas Frederiksen would like to see the Responsible Mining Index im..., though he finds it overall an interesting read and resource.

"Weighed down by a plethora of legacy issues- disregard of Free Prior Informed Consent (FPIC), water pollution, and no tangible community benefits from diamond extraction, can Zimbabwe Consolidated Diamond Company (ZCDC) deliver on its vision 'to be a world-class diamond producer for the long-term benefit of Zimbabwe'?," Mukasiri Sibanda asks. All this as the state-owned enterprise transitions from alluvial to conglomerate diamond mining.

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