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 a particular focus on spatial linkages resulting from the shared-use of mining-related infrastructure investments.
In addition, Fitsum Weldegiorgis from IIED 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

The extractive industries present important economic opportunities - including tax revenues, economic linkages and jobs - that can be harnessed for sustainable long-term development and the achievement of the SDG goals. Nevertheless, they also pose well known political and economic “resource curse” risks that can thwart development and entrench to corruption and mismanagement. How can governments and citizens know whether they are on the right track?
The Natural Resource Charter Benchmarking Framework is a tool for benchmarking a country’s management of oil, gas and minerals against global best practices. The framework draws on the policy options and practical advice of the Natural Resource Charter, and consists of a series of questions that government officials, concerned citizens or actors in the international community can use to structure research, discussions and strategic planning.
During this session we will discuss:
Presentations by: Rob Pitman and David Manley, Natural Resource Governance Institute
Reactions by: Daniel Gbondo, Government of Sierra Leone; Frank Kayitare, International IDEA, and Lois Laraba Machunga, Nigeria Natural Resource Charter.
Discussion Moderated by: Michael Stanley, Global Lead, WB Energy and Extractives Global Practice
