GOXI

sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

Please pardon the connectivity issues with the GOXI site in the past few days, which also affected the delivery of your Weekly GOXI. It appears to be a general problem with all NING platforms so we expect it to be fixed soon.

....................................

The STRADE project has found some interesting contrasts between the EU and other regions, when it comes to exploration spending. Find out more.

GIZ set out to evaluate the impact of EITI. See the results.

The picture emerging from the recently-ended Africa Oil Governance Summit is not pretty, according to Seibik Bugri's report.

Ngalim Bernard Yongabi too shares a report on environmental protection and corporate social responsibility by mining companies in the East and Adamaou regions of Cameroon (in French).

Rachel Etter-Phoya recaps the launch of Human Rights Watch’s report (including a video) on mining and human rights in Malawi .

And the conversation continues on the World Bank/UN report on Preventing Conflict in Resource-Rich Countries.

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