Leveraging Extractive Industry Infrastructure Investments for Broad Economic Development: Regulatory, Commercial and Operational Models for Railways and Ports

Toledano, Perrine

Since early 2010, the Vale Columbia Center on Sustainable International Investment (VCC) has been tackling the challenge of using extractive resources to propel sustainable development for resource-rich but cash-poor countries. A joint center of the Earth Institute and Columbia Law School, the VCC brings law, economics, environment and development practice perspectives together for a holistic and interdisciplinary view to this persistent challenge. The project for this working paper, arose out of VCC work performed in Mozambique that identified the potential for and limitations of leveraging extractive industry investments for regional economic development and diversification.
