This report on Africa’s mineral development regimes was prepared by the International Study Group (ISG) established in 2007 by the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA). It analyses African mining from a number of complemenary perspectives, driven by a search for new directions based on the African Mining Vision (AMV) which African leaders adopted in 2009. The processes which led to this Report started in 2007, at the peak of the expansion in global demand and rise in the prices of minerals and metals before the onset of the global financial and economic crisis in 2008. Even
as the surge in demand and prices fuelled the best period of growth in Africa for thirty years, the developments also provoked reflections about the experiences of two decades of continuous expansion of mining across Africa.
