sharing in governance of extractive industries
The GIZ Working Group on Resource Governance, part of the GIZ Sector Network Good Governance in Sub-Saharan Africa, is happy to present "Friend or Foe? Developing Partnerships in Natural Resource Governance" - a methodological guidance to stakeholders analyses in the resource sector.
Conducted by a research team of the Peace Research Institute Frankfurt (PRIF) and considering the growing globality and inherent cross stakeholder linkages of resource related issues, the study aims at providing a better overview and better understanding of who is active in the field on an international playing field and which potential for cooperation may exist.
Target audiences are organisations engaged with the link between natural resource governance and sustainable development. An original version of this study, containing more than 20 stakeholder profiles was produced for GIZ internal purposes. This condensed version of the original study provides a conceptual framework for identifying partnership possibilities between stakeholders in the field of natural resource governance and applies the framework to a selected number of actors.
It provides a simple tool for profiling actors in natural resource governance according to their agenda (i.e. the overarching goals they pursue), arena ( i.e. the strategies they pursue, the themes and geographic regions they focus on), assets (i.e. the competitive advantages they possess), and alliances (i.e. important partnerships and collaborative relations they have with others). Based on this actor profiling tool, a classification is developed to assess the partnership potential between different organisations. The framework can be applied to identify partners from any organisation’s perspective.
