Africa's natural resources: From curse to a blessing

18250 121 319

This year's Tana High-Level Forum on Security in Africa, which will take place on April 22 and 23, will focus on natural resources governance in Africa. Africa's rich natural resource endowment has long been at the heart of both the continent's many violent conflicts and its hopes for prosperity, so the stakes are high.

The resources ranging from farmland and forests to the oil reserves, mineral deposits and its waters have been the subject of endless research, fierce debates, brutal conflicts, novels, and movies.
