The rational and non-conflictual exploitation of natural resources

October 13th, 2014 to October 14th, 2014

SARW will hold a meeting on 13-14 October in Kampala on the rational and non-conflictual exploitation of natural resources between countries of the Great Lakes Region.

This is a follow up of the meeting that was held in Kinshasa on 29-30 may when consultants recruited to conduct a research in DRC, Angola and Uganda presented their findings and these were enriched by officials of government and civil society as well as other researchers from the 3 countries.

The reports have been consolidated into a final report that the Kampala meeting participants will adopt and make recommendations that will be addressed to various stakeholders in the region with a view to make the exploitation of cross-border natural resources more rational. These resources should contribute to peace and development in the Great Lakes region.
