"Dear Keith Strong political will is what is needed to turn things around since the country is endowed with vast natural resources including oil and gas. Some unscrupulous multinationals are also part of the problems as you've rightly appointed…"

Defining 'indigenous people'

IFC Performance Standard 7 defines indigenous peoples, 'as social groups with identities that are distinct from mainstream groups in national societies, are often among the most marginalized and vulnerable segments of the population'.In the field advocacy groups use phrases such 'historical owners of the land', 'traditional owners of land', and more recently I heard 'customary owners or first occupants', interchangeably which can be very confusing in Africa where tribal migrations on  large…See More

"Hi Antipas DRC has such allocations stipulated into the Mining Code...but it still not happening! I believe Tchad had similar laws on oil but it hasn't been implemented in the name of national sovereignty. It boils down to governance and…"

How SEBS nearly got imperilled by a word!

2 months ago I was in north eastern part DRC to conduct a Socio-Economic Baseline Survey (SEBS). One of the most commonly used French equivalent of survey is 'enquête' which is synonymous with 'investigation' as in criminal investigation. Because DRC has been struggling with governance for decades, ordinary people have developed an aversion for anything even remotely associated with the legal system; so words such as 'enquête', 'convocation', or the euphemism court orderlies like to use…See More

Why in post war Eastern DRC some people refer to mining companies as NGO's

Posted on February 27, 2017 at 11:42 0 Comments

It's not uncommon for staff of mining or exploration companies operating in Eastern DRC to get asked: what does your NGO do?  

Reasons for this odd question are both ignorance and a generalization based on similarities people have noted. For some NGO is a new phrase for company/Société because NGO's were the first formal job providers outside government they started seeing in their areas following the collapse of DRC's economy in the early 1990's. Many NGO's came during the war (1997…

DRC Oil Minister, Aime Ngoie Mukena declared that a new law on hydrocarbon was presented on 10/02/2017; it gives Government the responsibility to explore and assess the country's oil potential; he added that it offered guarantees for protected areas. His Home Affairs colleague on the same occasion issued a warning against anyone who would interfere with Government's efforts to validate its hydrocarbon potential.

Conference on oil exploration in Lake Tanganyika, Feb 2017.

The 2-day conference chaired by DRC Oil Minister started on 16/02 and ended on 18/02 in Kalemie, DRC. All 4 countries of the Tanganyika Basin were present: Zambia, Burundi, Tanzania and DRC. It was announced that 18 blocs have been granted to oil exploration companies, DRC which has the longest coastline with a record 11 of them.  There is no evidence of any engagement with coastal communities who are dependent on the little fish still left in the lake for their livelihood; therefore it's…
