sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

Due to a systemic problem with NING platform, the November 7 and November 14 issues of the Weekly GOXI failed to come to your inbox. You can still catch up by clicking on the respective links above. Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.


When editing a major planning document, "how can you be thorough and collaborative without collapsing under ...?", Patrick Field asks as he shares tips from the experience of the Consensus Building Institute (CBI).  

On that note, you can read the Natural Resource Governance Institute's comments on the IMF/World Bank's review of their debt sustainability framework for low-income countries.

Prudently utilized, payments to governments from oil, gas, and mining companies can go a long way to sustain public finances. PWYP-USA shares its experience with OpenOil's Aleph tool to analyze such payments as disclosed by companies listed on EU stock exchanges

And OpenOil's own Johnny West shares the most interesting findings from his organization's financial model of the Batu Hijau copper and gold mine in Indonesia.

With another copper project, Edernet, as a case in point, Mendee Jargalskaikhan discusses Mongolia's love affair with state ownership of big mining projects.

If you are in the mining industry, Purevudlam Altantsetseg reminds you to take her short survey.

And UNDP still needs your contribution to its survey on the performance of Chinese companies on sustainable development overseas--by December 2.

Remember to check out the special  issue of OGEL Journal on Emerging Issues in Polar Energy Law and Governance.

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