sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

Eric Joyce's blog on civil society and the extractive industries has set off a vibrant debate. Join the conversation.

OpenOil announces the addition of 18 new jurisdictions to its open data map of oil concessions. The countries range "from Oman and Iraqi Kurdistan in the east to Algeria and Morocco in the West."

According to one participant at Natural Resource Governance Insitute's (NRGI) training course in October, they taught an old journalism dog new tricks. Kwami Ahiabenu reports.

Mining in Malawi presents a one-year review of the review of oil and gas exploration agreements as announced by the government.

Diane Albrecht shares the video of a discussion on community rights and resource justice in Guinea.

And Jesse Salah Ovadia offers GOXIans a discount on his new book, The Petro-Developmental State in Africa.

These and more jobsblogsphotosvideos, and discussions.
