Titel: Extractive Natural Resource Development
Governance, Linkages and Aid

Resume: Natural resource-driven development in Africa has emerged as a hot topic in recent years. Extractive industries,1 by which is meant energy (i.e. gas, oil, and coal), minerals and metals, are an important part of this agenda. The renewed interest among governments, firms and donors in these industries hinges on the assumption that they will generate foreign revenues, create jobs and boost economic growth. Indeed, Africa’s abundant endowments of natural resources may speed up economic transformation, economic diversification and poverty alleviation. Industrial policies are thought to be particularly important to achieve this by helping to develop the linkages of the extractive industries sectors and the local economy, and by using resource rents and revenues to generate growth and employment in agriculture, industry and services more broadly.
