sharing in governance of extractive industries

What digital solutions for resource governance are out there? - GIZ request for information

Can blockchain, bid data, aerial intelligence and other new technologies help govern mining sectors better?

GIZ is venturing into the field of digitalization for resource governance. To best design future programs we need your help in discussing these questions:

  • Who is working on this already? Any start-up, NGOs, mining corporations or governments out there developing digital solutions to challenges pertinent to resource governance?
  • Any donors or other support structures for those?
  • What support would be most helpful in this field?
  • Anything else we should know about?

Feel free to comment below, PM or inbox me.

Hi Janne, Mining Dialogues is a not for profit operating in South Africa. We are developing an open data collaborative platform with a major focus on inclusivity for mine affected communities. The project is being incubated in SA but is intended to become a global resource. We'd be very keen to share our experience and explore partnering opportunities. If this is of interest you can reach me at: tcooper@miningdialogues360.co.za. Best, Tracey

Hello Janne! It is rare that I can comment on digital / new technology but on a recent GIZ assignement I was working on open data issues in Mauretania. Generally speaking, making EI-relevant data (primarily fiscal, but not necessarily only fiscal) available to the public more or less on real time via a Network and user-friendly Interfaces. Revenue Foundation is working on it on the Downstream (i.e. IT System) side, but the bigger challenge is to agree within a Gov to channel data and use one single Information System (rather than 125). The international EITI Secretariat will push forward this initiative, where Mauretania is in the forefront in Africa, implementation-wise. Happy to discuss more, Andre

Dear Kendra, great to be in touch again. I heard about the study and would love to talk to you about it. I'll be in touch next week. Cheers, Janne

Dear Janne, I can't send you a private message since we are not yet friends on GOXI, but I wanted to make you aware of a publication and new area of research we are starting at the U4 Anti-Corruption Resource Centre, which is funded by GIZ. See this link. This publication is about so-called "digital tools" - technological solutions to monitor natural resource extraction and production. The focus of the publication is on tools that can be used to reduce corruption, but the basic ideas underlying these initiatives and the types of technologies being used are not unique to corruption (and many of the tools we have identified were not designed with the idea of reducing corruption in mind). We plan to do more work on how to use various types of technology and also big/open data to monitor resource use. Please get in touch if this is of interest: kendra.dupuy@cmi.no

Great, thanks Kay. I'll get in touch. Any other ones out there?

Dear Janne, 

ITRI (the global tin industry association) has developed our own successful traceability procedures for conflict minerals (see https://www.itri.co.uk/itsci/frontpage) as well as investigated a range of digital options, and worked with a supply chain management provider. Feel free to get in touch, regards, Kay (kay.nimmo@itri.co.uk)

Thank you, Inga, that sounds super interesting. I'll get in touch via mail

Dear Janne,

At UN Environment we have developed a geo-spatial platform to support the sustainable use of natural resources, evidence based decision making and integrated planning. The MapX platform is available here: https://www.mapx.org/ . We would be very happy to provide further information and explore opportunities for collaboration. Please don't hesitate to get in touch - inga.petersen@un.org

Kind regards,

Inga
