sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

UNDP would like your opinion on the performance of Chinese companies on sustainable development overseas. Take the quick online survey by December 2.

PWYP-Indonesia reports that civil society organizations, residents, and local governments in Indonesia have been lobbying for the country's EITI to fully implement the 2013 standard, which requires all companies to report their payments project-by-project. This is partly because "advocacy has been further enhanced when project-level payment data has been available."

There's a model for that. As the global transparency movement drills down from the macro level to project level, OpenOil is building project-level financial models for the new era. Johnny West gives us five reasons why.   

Didrot Nguepjouo shares his 20-minute documentary  on the slightly mechanized artisanal mining in Cameroon (in French and English).

And on Tuesday, November 15, the World Bank will host Mining, the School of Rock: An Insight into Mineral Fiscal Regimes at the Bank's headquarters in Washington, DC. More information can be requested from hnguyen@worldbank.org
