[PDF] Promoting legal mineral trade in Africa's Great Lakes Region: A policy guide on professionalisation, formalisation and increased transparency

Author: Resource Consulting Services, sponsored by UK Department for International Development (DfID), the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MINBUZA), and the Crisis States Research Centre at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), Published on: 26 May 2010

The report's recommendations are principally focussed on what the international community can do to support and progress the implementation of transparency processes in EDRC's [Eastern Dem. Rep of Congo] minerals trade. The recommendations also include larger reform processes, such as security sector reform (SSR) to address the partial militarisation of EDRC's economy, and economic governance reforms that are critical to a holistic solution and required to support the effective implementation of transparency processes focussing on the mineral trade.
