Training seminar in Cameroon on good governance in extractive industries

In the context of a series of capacity building workshops by the German Development Cooperation (GIZ) to strengthen governance in Central Africa’s extractive sector, the Basel Institute contributed to a 4-day seminar on good governance in the extractive industries in the Central African Monetary Community (CEMAC), held in Douala, Cameroon, in December 2014.

This workshop aimed to enhance the skills of public servants in the field of good governance and to raise awareness of corruption risks inherent to the sector. Some 40 high-ranking officials from concerned ministries of Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon and the Republic of the Congo as well as members of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative Committee for the CEMAC area attended the workshop.
