sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

We apologize for the inconvenience that recent disruptions to the GOXI site may have caused you. It was a technical fault on our end. The fault has been fixed and all of GOXI's functions are back to normal as far as we know. Thank you for sticking with us through it. 

In the meantime, members have posted more than 25 blogs, discussions, and more, which we have listed below so you can see what you may have missed. 

One of those discussions is the October edition of the GOXI Learning Series. This month's focuses on Biodiversity and Human Rights. We invite you to join the discussion and participate in the webinar on Thursday. Remember: Webinars are available in English. There will also be one webinar each in Spanish, Portuguese, and Mongolian.

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