Sustainable use of resources in the extractive industries: the role of local content provisions

Local content provisions in the extractive industries: Efforts by national and regional actors to support enterprise development as part of the value chain.
Sub-Sahara Africa possesses one of the largest shares of resources in the world. However, the mining industries have failed to contribute to social and economic growth for the larger population. The conference aims to discuss how local value chains can become more sustainable in order to generate economic growth and opportunities for everyone. At the same time the access to raw materials from African countries is essential for manufacturing industries worldwide in order to secure a transition to green energy technologies. The conference combines both aspects and will discuss the roles and responsabilities of different actors to support these social and economic transitions to achieve sustainable development for all.
