07. bis 08.05. 2014:
Potsdam Spring Dialogues 2014
Natural Resource Governance in Africa. How to Benefit from Regional Integration
Nowadays, many African countries are described as “resource-rich”. In the past, however, resource wealth has often had a negative impact on national development. This is partly due to macroeconomic challenges and price volatility in the world commodity markets, but some of the causes are home-grown.
At the Potsdam Spring Dialogues 2014, the Development and Peace Foundation (SEF) and its partners will be turning the spotlight on some of the challenges facing development-oriented resource governance, with a focus on solutions. We will discuss questions for licenses and mining contracts, transparency and good financial governance and have a comparative view on different initiatives of RECs and other transnational regional groupings. The final panel will finally open its focus on the international level and thus also ask for German and European opportunities and responsibilities.
