Natural resources and energy

Over 50 countries are significantly dependent on extractive industries, and their governments face the challenge of transforming mineral assets into wider sustainable economic and social development.

The many potential impacts of oil, gas and mining projects need to be fully understood to help inform effective policy decision-making and to sustain the business licence to operate.
