Since 2003, this project has aimed to inform the international debate on the extractives industry in the Gulf of Guinea region, from Angola to Guinea.

Project Focus:

  • Revenue management 
  • Transparency of the extractive sector
  • Poverty reduction in resource rich countries

The Africa Programme has extended its network of expertise to cover the new oil frontiers in East Africa.  

The project holds regular events and roundtable meetings attended by senior government officials, NGOs, companies, and the media. These included a major conference on Oil Politics in Africa in association with Coventry University during which Hon Eng Irene Muloni MP, Ugandan Minister of Energy and Mineral Development spoke on Uganda’s emerging oil and gas sector.
