In the report, the term “extractivism economy” refers to the industries, actors and financial flows, as well as to the economic, material and social processes and outputs, associated with the globalized extraction of natural resources. The extractivism economy includes mineral and fossil fuel extraction, and monocultural large-scale agricultural, forestry and fishery operations. (...) It is beyond the scope of the Special Rapporteur’s mandate, and not the objective of the present report, to condemn all forms of natural resource extraction as inherently unequal, unjust or discriminatory. (...) Some have noted, for example, that the history of Latin America “is inseparably linked to raw-materials extraction”.17 During each historical phase, specific forms of natural resource appropriation have been central to the distribution of political and economic power, and to structuring social and cultural relations.

His work in this regard shows a deep concern among indigenous peoples about the negative effects of natural resource extraction on their environment. (...) According to the Special Rapporteur, threats to traditional Sami livelihoods may also be linked to natural resource extraction: The Sami way of life, especially in relation to reindeer husbandry, is threatened significantly by competing usage of land, often promoted by the Governments themselves through natural resource extraction or other development projects. In all three Nordic countries, various natural resource extraction and development projects threaten to diminish areas available for grazing.

Project title and project number: Methane Management in Extractive Industries 2. Expected timing/ duration: To be determined. 3. Objective of the project: The objective of the project is to explore methane management methods and technologies along the value chain in key energy-related extractive industries, namely coal, natural gas and oil, for the purpose of determining and promoting the most efficient methods of measuring, reporting, and verification (MRV) of methane emissions in these industries, and developing best practices for preventing such emissions. 4. (...) Improved understanding of methane emissions in extractive industries. EA1.1 examination and evaluation of the techniques and methods used for MRV of methane emissions in extractive industries in the UNECE member States, EA1.2 assessment of volumes of methane emissions along the value chain in extractive industries in the UNECE region.

The first panel was on the impact of natural resource riches on national and international tax policy and administration followed by a panel on transfer prices in the extractive industries. (...) However, one very important aspect of natural resource extraction – both for the government and its citizens as well as for the private sector – is the taxation thereof. (...) Applying these concepts to the extractive industries, key challenges include that natural resources are inherently local and cannot be moved to less expensive places to extract, extraction is very capital intensive and financing is thus a major issue, extracted resources need to be processed to be valuable, often involving many different functions and the use of many assets.
