Event: Reversing the resource curse: A broader agenda for change

This event, hosted by MEP Nirj Deva, Vice Chair of the Development Committee, will look at the role of the extractive industries in reversing the “resource curse” affecting developing countries. In particular, participants will discuss the policy framework needed to ensure the extraction of natural resources benefit developing countries and become a force for good. Natalia Alonso, Head of the Oxfam’s EU Office, will present Oxfam’s views on the need for greater transparency on this sector, building on the rules agreed earlier this year by the EU as part of the EU Accounting Directive.
