Transforming Society through the Extractive Industries

Transforming Society through the Extractive Industries (PDF ebook)

By Dumas, Daniel

Extractive industries have real potential to transform societies for the better. However, fulfilling this potential is neither assured nor automatic. The extraction of non-renewable natural resources (notably oil, gas and minerals) has often led to political instability, reven...ue management challenges, corruption and increased social tension. It is therefore necessary for resource-rich countries to improve legislative and regulatory frameworks, build institutional capacity and strengthen governance, in order to ensure that the natural resource blessing does not become a curse. Illustrated by case studies of good practice from across the Commonwealth, this book will help government decision-makers ensure that the extractive industries transform society for the better, while also minimising the risk of instability and conflict.
