The Natural Resource Governance Institute [resourcegovernance.org] (NRGI) has launches a new website resourceprojects.org, providing project level payment data with the aim to increase transparency in the natural resources sector across the world.
ResourceProjects.org is an open-source repository of data on oil, gas and mining projects across the world. It provides a platform to collect, display, download and search extractive project information using open data. It aims to harvest data on project-by-project payments to governments—based on recent mandatory disclosure legislation in the EU, U.S. and Canada as well as EITI reports—and link it to associated information about the project from a variety of sources. The platform will make it easier for journalists, CSOs, researchers and government officials to search, access and download relevant data.Have a look here [resourceprojects.org] and further explanation here.
