sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

"By becoming more transparent and accountable, the government has an opportunity to foster public confidence in its actions, reduce corruption risks and attract new and responsible investment," Emmanuel Bria writes, and discusses three transparency measures that President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo of Indonesia should consider for his reform agenda.

Meanwhile, on the occasion of Ghana's fifth year as an oil producer, the African Center for Energy Policy is  reflecting on the lessons learned from that can help improve the country's own governance mechanisms and those of other African countries.

And Daniel Gilbert responds to Dauda Garuba with some ideas for breaking up the "prebendal" behaviors some of Nigeria's elite have towards the country's oil riches.

These and more jobsblogsphotosvideos, and discussions.
