The Extractive Industries Source Book: about this project
This a unique study on good practice issues in the development of hydrocarbons and mining resources in capital importing countries. It requires the creation of an internet-based database - the Extractive Industries Source Book - that will draw together and analyse ‘good practice’ in key activities in the international oil, gas and mining industries, such as awarding contracts, monitoring operations, collecting taxes and royalties, managing and allocating revenues and implementing sustainable development projects.
The EI Source Book project will gather together diverse experiences from disparate sources, drawing on a wide variety of stakeholders, and make the results readily available to senior users in government departments in developing countries as well as civil society groups and decentralised, informal networks. It will contribute to capacity building and access to knowledge in these countries, especially in their relations with international investors. It will be interactive too, so that users of the EI Source Book can participate in its further development. A hard copy of the basic ‘Source Book Narrative’ will also be available.
