Africa’s oil, gas, and minerals offer a once-in-a-millennium opportunity to lift millions of people out of poverty. While these sectors have often been associated with increased corruption, poverty, and conflict, for example, the revenue from Africa’s natural resource wealth could be used to fund health, education, and other critical investments instead. In 2010, Africa’s exports of oil and minerals (€252 billion) were worth roughly seven times international aid (€36 billion) to the continent.

This year, the 2013 Africa Progress Report will report on the continent’s oil, gas, and mining sectors, building on last year’s theme of equity. The report will argue that Africa’s oil, gas, and mining sectors must do more to benefit African populations. We cannot accept business as usual.
