Why is the question of anchoring mineral infrastructure in regional integration important? Because in the African continent, the lack of infrastructure is still a significant barrier to mobility (of people, goods and services), productivity and economic development. And, in that context, regional integration can leverage the use of (regional) infrastructure for broader economic development. The essential benefit is to provide larger and more competitive markets, reduce transport costs and establish connectivity across countries. For this to happen, policy frameworks are essential, explains Isabelle Ramdoo in her presentation for the E15Initiative’s Workshop on Extractive Industries.
