sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

Vera Belazelkoska acknowledges that improving the livelihoods of artisanal miners will take a lot more than a simple technology fix. Nevertheless, she argues, mobile technology can help address some of challenges. She lists five of them.

Isabelle Ramdoo shares the latest thinking on resource-based industrialization by ECDPM.

In one simple chart, Pietro Toigo shows the macroeconomic choices policymakers face in translating natural resource revenue into human development outcomes in West Africa.

And Patrick Schein makes his case again for why couples should be wearing certified gold wedding rings from artisanal and small-scale miners, in Spanish this time.

Plus more jobs, blogs, photos, videos, and discussions.

Featured member - Kierren Moffat

Kierren Moffat is a social and organizational psychologist running a research group in the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) called Resources in Society. The group examines the relationship between extractives and society across scales, geographies and time. It uses predominantly quantitative methods to understand the views of communities living near mines and citizens in mining intensive countries regarding mineral development. Through this work, Resources in Society has developed robust models for how a social licence to operate works at local, regional, and national levels in multiple countries.
