sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI 

In a week where women were celebrated, NRGI showcased its efforts to strengthen women's participation in resource governance, Lynda Lawson highlighted women in the jewellery supply chain in Madagascar,  Levin Sources and the Inter-Governmental Forum (IGF) reminded us "why we should foster economic independence for women in artisanal and small-scale mining," and GIZ is looking for a consultant on gender and the Kimberley Process

Meanwhile, Patricia I. Vasquez separates the myth from the reality of China's true intentions behind the hundreds of billions of dollars it has poured into Latin America's oil and gas sector in the past decade. 

In advance of OpenOil's full financial model of the deal signed by the Lebanese government with Total, Eni and the Russian firm Novatek for gas exploration, Johnny West shares a few observations. Hint: He recommends a deep breath. 

The Columbia Center for Sustainable Investment shines its light on Tanzania's gas

Publish What You Pay Indonesia commends a presidential decree on beneficial ownership and pushes for accelerated action.

A new IGF report highlights the pressing need for innovation in the mining sector, as "productivity has decreased by 30 per cent, commodity price fluctuations are squeezing profit margins, costs continue to rise and deposits are increasingly difficult and expensive to access."

Another post by the Forum goes deeper into innovation in renewable energy, with examples from Canada and Namibia

And Jasmin Blessing shares a call by John H. Knox for the international community to recognize the human right to a healthy environment
