A weekly digest of activity on GOXI
The Philippines’ Secretary responsible for environment and natural resources and India’s Mines Minister offer different worldviews on the role of mining in the development of their respective countries.
How can cooperative business relationships catalyze economic development, leading to sustainable growth for Aboriginal businesses and communities in Canada? Anthea Darychuk has some ideas.
Following the workshop ‘Harnessing Extractive Industries for Development in sub-Saharan Africa’ the University of Surrey Business School is now inviting submissions for publication as part of a special issue in The Extractive Industries and Society, An International Journal.
IIED continues its focus on artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) in Ghana by recapping a multi-stakeholder ‘action dialogue’ and also shares a background paper on the issues.
And the Co-Chairperson of the Ghana Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (GHEITI) urges Ghanaians to make the management of extractive resources a campaign issue.
