Economic Brief - Fairer Mining Concessions in Africa: How can this be Achieved?

14-May-2019

Key Issues

• Mining is an important sector in Africa.

• The sector’s potential contributions to development are high but not always realized due to limited government revenues from concessions.

• A fairer sharing of resource rents that increases government shares and allows investors to realize reasonable returns is necessary for the sector to better contribute to development.
