Work of EI Source Book Partners

EI Source Book partner Pact is working to support African countries to do better in their management of natural resources, e.g. in DR Congo and Kenya.  ACET is based in Ghana and is helping to drive forward extractive industries-led economic transformation in a number of African countries, e.g. through its work in Mozambique; see this video interview with ACET's Director of Extractive Resources Services, Sheila Khama.  

The ICMM have produced two African Resource Endowment Documents, (2007), Making Mining Count in Tanzania: A Case Study and Making Mining Count in Ghana: A Case Study.  A great example of ICMM's YouTube video channel is showcased below, a webcast of part of the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) 2014 Convention, including a talk by the ICMM President (2008 - 2015) Tondy Lodge and the EISB's World Bank project director, Paulo de Sa.
