Working Paper 132 - Manganese Industry Analysis: Implications for Project Finance
This working paper, analyzes the global manganese value chain, with the objective of understanding types and sources of project finance, and the role of development finance institutions (DFIs). This industry is of interest given growing global demand for manganese products, and the sector’s high potential for the African continent which holds a lion’s share of the world’s manganese reserves. The globalized nature of commodity markets, and a dearth of transactions on the African continent, necessitates a global review of transactions.
