sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

'Will India be the first to adopt a 21st century mineral policy?," Rahul Basu asks as he examines the principle of minerals as a shared inheritance over which future generations have equal rights.

In a similar vein, the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) shares a piece looking at the deep seabed as "the common heritage of mankind" and calls for a moratorium on licences to extract from it.

With the expansion of commercial interest in oil in Turkana, how can small and medium-sized enterprises take advantage of direct and indirect supply chain opportunities? DFID'S Kenya Extractives Programme is trying.

With its listed extractives companies doing business in some 106 countries, Australia's proposed new payments-to-governments reporting law catches the attention of Publish What You Pay Australia and ActionAid Australia in their new report, Towards Transparency.

And Rachel Etter-Phoya's attention is drawn to Malawi's long-awaited Mines and Minerals Bill, including the fact that the version of the Bill that made it to cabinet and will be tabled in parliament is almost the same one that was presented for public consultation before receiving more than 140 proposals to strengthen it.

These and more jobs, blogs, photos, videos, and discussions on GOXI.
