World Bank Study, August 2015
The extractive industries (EI) sector occupies an outsize space in the economies of many developing countries. Policy makers, economists and public finance professionals working in such countries are frequently confronted with issues that require an in-depth understanding of the sector, its economics, governance, and policy challenges, as well as the implications of natural resource wealth for fiscal and public financial management. The objective of this volume is to provide a concise overview of the EI-related topics these professionals are likely to encounter.
