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.
