sharing in governance of extractive industries
The study has been prepared by the Sector Project Sustainable Economic Development on behalf of BMZ and in cooperation with the Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment. The study focuses on the promotion of economic linkages between foreign EI investments and the rest of RRCs’ economies as well as on these linkages’ potential to foster economic diversification, employment creation, and skill enhancement. After a short overview of the types of economic linkages, the study reviews the academic literature and a diverse set of case studies for each individual linkage type, based on which lessons for the promotion of linkages are deduced. It then analyses how policies aimed at the development of economic linkages may be affected by various constraints such as the international legal framework or changes in global production processes. Based on these considerations, the study develops different recommendations for the major stakeholders, namely, the government, the EI sector, and international development cooperation organizations. The study is available online.
