The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH recently published the study “Linkages to the Resource Sector: The Role of Companies, Governments, and International Development Cooperation” which was prepared by the Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment (CCSI). The study explains the various linkages that can be created to the Extractive Industries sector (EI), includes a brief summary of the theory underpinning each linkage type and provides case studies that exemplify how countries have successfully leveraged the respective linkages. It lays out the key constraints to linkage creation and provides recommendations to EI companies, governments and international development cooperation on how each of these stakeholders can contribute to linkage creation. In this webinar, CCSI will present the study with aparticular focus on spatial linkages resulting from the shared-use of mining-related infrastructure investments.

In addition, Maren Kohelmann from GIZ will provide a preview to a soon-to-be released paper, “Navigator to Support Economic Diversification: Instruments for Resource-Rich Developing Countries”.  This paper will navigate the user through relevant instruments to promote diversification of resource-rich economies. It presents instruments (initiatives, tools and good practices) and at the same time takes into account different types of economic linkages.

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A

Introduction by: Jeff Geipel, Mining Shared Value Venture Leader, Engineers Without Boarders Canada
