The search is on for the next EITI Chair as the initiative also announces its 7th Global Conference, to be held in Lima, Peru from February 24 to 25, 2016. All are invited.

The OECD requests your comments on its due diligence guidance to help mining, oil and gas enterprises identify and manage challenges related to undertaking meaningful stakeholder engagement.

One document that may help OECD's guide is the new report, Mining, Resettlement and Lost Livelihoods: Listening to the Voices of the Mualadzi Community in Mozambique, prepared by Oxfam and the University of Queensland Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining.

The EI Academy illustrates the numerical realities from mineral exploration to profitable mining in these short videos in English and Spanish.

Enough Project presents recommendations for solving the illicit conflict gold supply chain from eastern Congo.

In the midst of decline in diamond mining in Sierra Leone's Kono District came Ebola, creating orphans whose future is now even more bleak than before. And then there's the role of poverty in exacerbating the effects of Ebola. Adam Rolfe shares the last two of Babar Turay's essays on the impact of Ebola on Sierra Leone's diamond mining area.
