sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

What are the impacts of EITI, COST, GIFT, Open Contracting, and similar multi-stakeholder initiatives. A new report addresses this question.

Meanwhile, the EITI argues that the most tangible results are seen in individual countries, and shares some results of its own.

Following ECDPM's latest paper on local content requirements in extractives, Juan Herrera contributes research on the subject focused on Latin America.

From Guinea, Lien de Brouckere shares her adventures in spreading the word on the American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative's Practical Guide, Mining & Communities. 

Despite allegedly being starved of funds by the Ministry of Finance, the Public Interest and Accountability Committee of Ghana's Parliament has released its 2014 report with the support of donors. Seibik Bugri reports.

Would you like to see some Petrobras contracts? How about contracts from Colombia, Egypt, Libya, Mongolia, or Portugal? OpenOil's contracts repository just got bigger.

And the IMF's Fiscal Analysis of Resource Industries (FARI) is now open.

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