sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

At the 17th China Mining Congress, the country's Minister of Land and Resources, Jiang Daming, remarked that the need for investment be “inclusive at every stage of the mining life cycle” and promote “equitable outcomes for stakeholders.” Are we seeing a shift in China's approach? Michael Jarvis reports from Tianjin.

If only some PDF files can be unlocked, a lot more EITI data can be made accessible and usable. So how can accessibility and utility aspects be built into EITI processes from the design stage?  A workshop held on the occasion of the EITI Board meeting in Bern, Switzerland addressed this question. 

Also on the occasion of the Bern meeting, Dauda Garuba lists the limits to EITI in Nigeira*

And how can Kenya's largely untapped natural resources help generate jobs and employment? Adam Smith International has a paper on that.

These and more jobsblogsphotosvideos, and discussions.

Featured GOXIan - Anne-Emmanuelle Sidibe

Anne-Emmanuelle Sidibe is a second year LLM student in business and fiscal law in Abidjan, Côte-d'Ivoire. Her interest in the mining sector is new. It comes from her participation in the African Mining Legislation Atlas (AMLA) training, held at the University of Cape Town. AMLA is a project of the World Bank Group to develop a platform that will allow easy access to all African mining legislations. The objectives of this platform are to make the information accessible and understandable, to participate in transparency in the mining sector in Africa, and to assist African governments to better negotiate mining contracts. This platform handles only non-oil minerals.

Anne-Emmanuelle was selected to participate in the project as a member of the Legal Research Team (LRT). Her job will be to update primary legislations and related legislations of one or two African countries and to make an accurate analysis of the various legal topics (scope, exploration permits, the fiscal, etc.) treated in these legislations. As a novice in the mining sector, she is fond of knowledge in mining law, and she is particularly interested in good governance in the mining sector, transparency, ownership of minerals, environmental and social impact of the mining, local development, and fiscal terms in the mining sector, so she is constantly doing research.
