New Congolese oil and mining codes must include strong measures on transparency, tenders and community rights
As the Democratic Republic of Congo begins the process of revising its mining and oil codes, Global Witness has published its recommendations on how the codes could best ensure transparent and accountable management of these key sectors.
Congo, a country two-thirds the size of western Europe, is hugely wealthy in minerals including copper, cobalt and diamonds. Vast areas of Congo are also gradually being opened to oil exploration, with the potential to transform the country’s economy but also posing serious environmental and corruption risks.
