Abstract:This book investigates concerns in natural resource management with a focus on the capacity dimension. It examines dynamics of leadership, governance, criminality, structural transformation, as well as emerging issues such as green growth. Capacity development measures for reducing the information and power asymmetry between African states and their global counterparts are critical. At the same time, civil society must play its role as watchdog over political leadership. Chapters: 1. Toward a coordinated approach to natural resource management in Africa (Kobena T. Hanson, Francis Owusu and Cristina D'Alessandro); 2. The status of natural resource management in Africa: capacity development challenges and opportunities (Joseph Ayee); 3.
