sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

“How do we know when a [multi-stakeholder initiative] is the right approach?  How do we gauge their effectiveness? What makes one more successful than another?” These are the questions posed by Michael Jarvis as he highlights a broad discussion by some of the leading practitioners.

One well-known multi-stakeholder initiative, EITI, reflects on its own overall progress and its effectiveness in communications.

Jillian Lilico shares tips on how to localize content while the president of the Inter-American Development Bank shares tips with ICMM CEOs on making mining a development engine.

And the Peruvian Chapter of Transparency International shares a video on the effects of illegal/informal mining in the ‘Madre de Dios’ region.

These and many more on GOXI.
