Chapter Chapter 1 in New Frontiers in Natural Resources Management in Africa, 2019, pp 1-5 from Springer

Abstract: Abstract This chapter is a prelude to the discussions on new frontiers for natural resource management in Africa within the context of implementing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) on the continent. It will point to the fact that African governments have the responsibility to manage and regulate their use, transforming natural assets into sustained prosperity for both current and future generations. Further, it will highlight that associated extractive industries also need to commit to the effective and transparent management of minerals, hydrocarbon resources and agricultural land or forest holdings in order to support inclusive and sustainable economic development. It will summarize the innovative best practices and available solutions to catalyse improved governance of natural resources and promote resource-driven growth and development; and give policy recommendations that will support the sustainable and transparent management of resources for sustainable development in Africa.
