Collaboration International Institute of Social Studies Erasmus University of Rotterdam,  The UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction
Time 2012-2017
Brief Description This programme analyses and enhances socially accountable governance of mineral resources in eastern DR Congo. DRC has enormous mineral wealth, yet this results in violence, poverty and corruption rather than economic growth. The government, and international donors, have embarked on a programme to regain control over the sector and convert it into a lever for development.
