AbstractExtractive industries (oil, gas, and mining) have the potential to generate significant wealth for developing countries and to serve as important catalysts for growth. They generate large revenues-through royalties, taxation, and exports-and create employment. In some cases, however, resource wealth is associated with political turmoil, deteriorating standards of living, civil conflict, and elite capture. The management's response to the Extractive Industries Review (EIR) and accompanying evaluations signaled a critical turning point in the World Bank Group's (WBG's) engagement in the sector, which had hitherto focused primarily on exploration and development activities, sector policy reform, and commercialization of state-owned enterprises. This publication presents four of the finalist case studies, selected on the basis of project: 1) scalability; 2) replicability; 3) innovation; and 4) level of multi-stakeholder collaboration. In an effort to better document and showcase the variety of ways in which country teams are working with different actors on the often sensitive topic of good governance in the oil, gas, and mining sectors, the World Bank Institute and the World Bank Oil, Gas and Mining Unit (SEGOM) initiated an internal case story competition in 2011.

West Africa - Mineral Sector Strategic Assessment (WAMSSA) : An Environmental and Social Strategic Assessment for the Development of the Mineral Sector in the Mano River UnionWorld Bank (World Bank, 2010-03-31)The West African Mineral Sector Strategic Assessment (WAMSSA) is a strategic environmental and social assessment intended to identify policy, institutional, and regulatory adjustments required to integrate environmental and social considerations into mineral sector development in Africa. The study focused on three Mano River Union (MRU) countries, Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone, all categorized as mineral-rich countries which earn - or could earn (in the case of Liberia) - significant revenues from exports of bauxite, iron ore, rutile, gold, and diamonds. WAMSSA featured an analytical component, and an extensive consultation process designed to initiate a policy dialogue on improving mineral sector governance and enhancing the benefits of mineral sector development for the MRU region. This report summarizes the findings of the WAMSSA process, and provides a series of recommendations to address environmental, social, and governance priorities highlighted by analytical and consultation components of the assessment. The recommendations are intended to provide guidance to the African Mineral Governance Program (AMGP) and Extractive Industry Transparency Initiative Plus Plus initiatives that are gathering momentum in the region.
Malawi - Mineral Sector Review : Source of Economic Growth and DevelopmentWorld Bank (World Bank, 2012-03-19)This mineral sector review examines the mineral sector as a potential source of growth and development in Malawi. In seeking the World Bank's assistance the Government of Malawi was particularly interested in confirming the potential for mineral sector growth, identifying which constraints to the development of the sector need to be addressed by the Government and suggesting strategies to foster a positive contribution by the mineral sector to sustainable development and poverty reduction. This report is organized into four chapters. Chapter one examines the potential for mineral sector growth in the short, medium and long term and indicates the direct and indirect economic and development benefits that could result. The remaining chapters address constraints that could prevent the mineral sector's full potential from being realized, especially those that can be addressed by government action, focusing on the development of efficient and effective legal, regulatory and institutional arrangements for managing the mineral sector (chapter two); the design of robust mineral revenue generation and management regimes (chapter three); and the creation of sound arrangements for the environmental and social management of the mineral sector (chapter four). Each chapter concludes with a summary of the main findings and recommendations for action with an indicated timeframe.
The World Bank's Evolutionary Approach to Mining Sector ReformMcMahon, Gary (World Bank, Washington, DC, 2010-10)In this report, in addition to aggregate results, six brief case studies are used to highlight the impact of Bank supported mining sector reform on various indicators at different links of the value chain. These include: the impacts on investment; production and employment in Argentina; institutional capacity building in Papua New Guinea; production and fiscal revenues in Tanzania; community and regional development in Madagascar; mining sector reform and sustainable development in Mongolia; and mining and resource corridors in Liberia. The reforms of the 1990s and early 2000s, which focused on increasing investment and building regulatory capacity, have often had spectacular results with respect to investment and good results with respect to institution building. The work on increasing the efficiency and transparency of fiscal regimes has also achieved significant success, although it is still too early to make a final assessment. While the mining sector-specific aspects of the management and allocation of fiscal revenues are still in early days, there do seem to have been important impacts on poverty reduction and sustainable development in a number of countries that have undergone mining reform, although there has been an insufficient passage of time to make definitive judgments.
