Extractives for Development (E4D) – risks and opportunities

This project aims to help policymakers deal with the risks and opportunities in oil & gas and mining for development, poverty reduction, and the environment.

This project builds on the Extractives for Development (E4D) project undertaken by UNU-WIDER from 2014-18. The new project aims to further enhance the links established to senior policy makers, international organizations and the oil, gas and mining industries themselves to share lessons across regions, and to identify opportunities as well as risks (and ways of mitigating those risks), and to chart the future of the global extractives industries and the consequences for both low and middle income countries.
