Hi, Stephen

 

One more comment .... I note that Osagyefo Network for Rural Development (OSNERD - Ghana) is a non-profit non-governmental organization, committed to poverty reduction and rural development.  I was wondering if you had come across another, complementary, ning online social platform (i.e. like GOXI), http://genderinvaluechains.ning.com/, which has the aim of "ncreas(ing) the gender sensitivity of value chain oriented sustainable rural economic development programmes".  So, there is an overlapping interest in rural development and poverty reduction here.  Of interest?

Hi, Stephen

 

One project is spear-heading academia-industry links on petroleum and, indeed, gas and mining too.

The Extractive Industries Source Book (http://www.eisourcebook.org) partnership includes the University of Dundee (the lead agent), the University of Witwatersrand in South Africa and the University of Queensland in Australia, alongside industry groups such as the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) and  the Institut Français du Pétrole (Paris, France), and (taking an even broader perspective) the African Center for Economic Transformation (ACET).

The overall objective of the Extractive Industries Source Book is to provide developing nations with technical understanding and practical options around oil, gas and mining sector development issues. A central premise of the Source Book is that good technical knowledge can better inform political, economic and social choices with respect to sector development and the related risks and opportunities.

Hope this is helpful.

All the Best
