CCSI, the World Bank and the Sustainable Development Solutions Network hosted a brown bag lunch discussion about the changes, opportunities and challenges we are most likely to be facing over the coming years with respect to the governance of extractive industries.

Increasing resource dependence over the past decade has lately taken on new dimensions, given the changing global context: price volatility; intensifying automation; increased transparency around contracts; payments and beneficial ownership; open data movements increasing accessibility to key information; and rising awareness of the necessity to plan for a low carbon economy, etc.

Four leading practitioners discussed how they see the challenges and opportunities shape up, and in particular, how the World Bank’s EI SourceBook can serve as a tool to strengthen governance in the sector. (To download the ebook PDF please click here).
