Time: 9:30- 11:00am EST 


In their attempts to maximize the economic benefits of extractive industry activity, host country governments and companies often work to model the impacts in terms of variables including employment creation and revenue retained in country. In addition to informing the public on the impacts of sector activity, modelling potential economic impacts can help inform government policy and multi-stakeholder programming that attempts to increase benefits including local hiring, procurement and increased tax revenue.

This webinar will present two examples of this kind of modelling:

  1. The IFC will present its recently released modelling of economic impacts of oil and gas sector activity in Ghana, including effects in GDP, tax revenue, and infrastructure.
  2. BGR and Kaiser EDP will present their model designed to predict the types of goods and services procured during mining operations. The presentation will focus on the application of the model to procurement associated with copper mining in Zambia. Such modelling provides useful data for targeting local supplying opportunities.

Questions that will be addressed include:

  1. Why is it important to measure the impacts of local content policies?
  2. What kind of information and resources are required to build these kinds of models? Was this information readily available in the case of Ghana and Zambia?
  3. How should policy-makers utilize the modelling of local content impacts of extractive industry activity? What are the opportunities and risks?

Presentations will be followed by ample time for Q & A and discussion with the audience.


  • Miguel Angel Rebolledo Dellepiane, Senior Investment Officer, IFC
  • Evgenia Shumilkina, Results Measurement Specialist, IFC
  • Nils Handler, Research Assistant, BGR Extractives and Development Sector Programme
  • Rupert Barnard, Founder and Group Managing Director at Kaiser EDP

Following the presentation, a summary will be posted on the ELLED Community of Practice (CoP) and the discussion will continue online. For questions and information on joining the ELLED CoP please email jeffgeipel@ewb.ca (community administrator) and kyeladeweerdt@ewb.ca (community operations officer).
