sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

If you're fortunate (or unfortunate) enough to suddenly find yourself as Minister of State in charge of extractive industries, where do you begin to get a handle on this huge task? There's a book for that.

And if you seek to understand the basics of mining and oil project economics, supply and demand curves, and investor metrics, there's an online course for that. It begins this Friday, the 13th. 

"The EITI Board admits Malawi as an EITI candidate country on 22 October 2015. In accordance with the EITI Standard, Malawi is required to publish its first EITI Report within 18 months of becoming a candidate..." With that statement, Malawi has become an EITI candidate country. Celebration and encouragement followed in Lilongwe.

Paul Cisneros shares his paper (in Spanish) on tackling illegal mining in some Amazon countries. (GOXI's note: We encourage submissions in all languages. Remember, GOXIans are everywhere.)

And if you happen to be in Berlin this week, RCS Global will be at the German Raw Materials Conference, Assuming Responsibility - Promoting Sustainability in the Raw Materials Sector. 

These and more jobsblogsphotosvideos, and discussions.
