About My Work
Providing key insights in little understood extractive value chains and sectors as well as tailored advisory services, Afai Consulting focuses on the interplay between the extractive sectors and Human Security issues at the local, national, regional and global level. In line with the UN sustainable development goals, Afai Consulting seeks to advance Human Rights in the extractive sectors.

People have an imprescriptible right to fulfil their aspirations and extractive activities of both renewable and non-renewable resources can often provide the necessary starting point to do so if well managed. Yet extractive operations often take place in zones of weakened governance where compliance, monitoring, and enforcement may present challenges for all parties, with the potential of generating negative impacts for communities, private companies and local authorities.
