sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

Watch Father David Luhaka tell his own story of how he worked with other parties to move towards better development outcomes from mining in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). His is one of five cases in the Cases in Integrity series.

Semkae Kilonzo reports on the Natural Resource Governance Institute's endorsement of a civil society group's position on the draft petroleum policy for Tanzania (as Statoil reports another gas discovery).

The Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) welcomes Colombia and the United Kingdom as candidate countries and recognizes Chad and Indonesia as compliant.

Soledad Mills seeks your input on the EO100™ Standard for responsible oil and gas production.

And remember to check out new job opportunities at Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment (New York, USA), Oxfam (Addis Ababa, Ethiopia), and EICC (Virginia, USA).
