This practice paper is a rapid analysis of the role played by extractive organisations (‘extractives’) in the 2018 Papua New Guinea earthquake response. It explores the strengths and weaknesses of their engagement, and proposes that for
humanitarian organisations to work more effectively with extractives they need to engage with them more intentionally – to understand, to learn and to plan together. The paper provides a series of questions to guide engagement, in ‘Digging Deeper’ text boxes throughout the paper, for both humanitarian organisations and extractives.
