sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

This week, GIZ responds to EITI's response to GIZ's study Assessing the Effectiveness and Impact of the EITI. Join the conversation as the EITI Board prepares for its 35th meeting.

Still on the subject of disclosure, Publish What You Pay shares efforts by Bantay Kitay in the Philippines towards disclosure that actually works for the people it is intended to help.

MAP-X, developed in partnership between the United Nations Environment Programme and the World Bank, aims to address information asymmetries and improve the quality of evidence-based dialogue and decision making among stakeholders by aggregating, authenticating, and publishing geo-spatial data on the combined impacts of extractive projects, all towards building trust. See the blog and the video.

Also with a video, Nana Owusu Sekyere shares an account of the Keyime Project in Ghana.

It turns out that in Ghana respiratory-related illnesses are second only to malaria. Part of the blame, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, goes to dirty fuels imported into the country.

The Natural Resource Governance Institute has developed 170 questions you and your government should be asking about natural resource governance.

Out of Brexit, an opportunity for a new model to strengthen the UK's trade partnerships, including in extractives.

And Guy Halpern reports on a webinar on the OECD's Framework for Extractive Projects on Collaborative Strategies.

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

Featured organization - MSI Integrity

The Institute for Multi-Stakeholder Initiative Integrity (MSI Integrity)’s mission is focused on examining and understanding the impact and value of voluntary initiatives that address business and human rights.

It partners with academic institutions, and local, national, and international organizations to research key questions surrounding the effectiveness of these initiatives; facilitates and shares learning in the field; and develops tools to evaluate initiatives that apply current understandings of what makes initiatives effective from a human rights perspective.  In all of its work, MSI Integrity takes a particular interest in how initiatives include, empower, and impact affected communities.
