Managing Oil, Gas and Mining Governance in Exceptional Times
7 December 2021–25 January 2022
Online series in discussion with Paul Collier in partnership with the Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford
Countries with non-renewable resource wealth face both an opportunity and a challenge. When used well, these resources can create greater prosperity for current and future generations. Squandered, they can cause economic instability, social conflict and lasting environmental damage. In the drive to benefit from resource wealth, the decisions of governments, companies and citizens all matter—and often they go wrong.
Join Sir Paul Collier, professor of economics and public policy at the Blavatnik School of Government in conversation with global experts from the private and public sector on challenges the oil, gas and mining industry is facing in the era of rising commodity prices and the need to reduce carbon emissions.
Sheila Khama, former CEO of De Beers Botswana and natural resources policy advisor at the World Bank and African Development Bank, reflected on the role the private sector has played in Botswana’s economic development, which was shaped by diamond mining.
