sharing in governance of extractive industries
What are the key challenges facing governments as they try to operationalize local content policies? What is best practice to date?
IGF's Sustainability Round Tables on Local Content Policy will take place at Indaba on Monday, February 5, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the CTICC's rooftop terrace.
This event will feature parallel interactive round tables focused on six key subject areas: defining local content; building supplier capacity; skills development; economic diversification; different policy options; and the impact of new technologies. Moderators for each round table will summarize the key points in plenary. This event will also feature the launch of the IGF’s member guidance on local content policies.
Moderators will open the session, each presenting a brief overview of their subject area:
Participants will then break into the round tables, with moderators presiding at each. The discussion will center on challenges the participants have faced, on ways they have addressed the issue, or on ways they may have helped others address the issue. Moderators will facilitate those discussions, and will bring the highlights back to plenary.
Moderators for the round tables include:
