sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

According to EITI's blog, it is estimated that one-fifth of the Government of Colombia's revenue comes from the extractive industries. Coming soon, Colombians can access, for the first time, a consolidated report on companies’ payments and government receipts from the industry.

From India, Rahul Basu shares stories on iron ore mining in the country's East.

For West Africa, Pietro Toigo drills down on how countries in the sub-region can invest revenues from new discoveries of extractive resources in health, education, skills, and other tangible development outcomes.

With some surprising numbers, Degol Hailu takes the conversation a step further into the future as he advocates for more overseas development assistance to go towards industrial development so resource-dependent countries can become less dependent on aid and resources.

How is political change in Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Guinea, and Tanzania affecting the implementation of EITI? Kimsegninga Savadogo takes a look.

Valerie Marcel is surprised by a World Bank survey showing positive perceptions of the oil and gas industry, prompting a discussion about samples and methodology. Join the discussion.

And Evelyn Parra shares various articles and photos.

These and more jobsblogsphotosvideos, and discussions.
