2014 Economic Forum

“Resource Management: Making Oil Work for Africa.”

The aim of this particular conference was to facilitate a constructive dialogue on emerging oil and gas producing in Africa, and to share experiences, intelligence, and knowledge on oil resource management from the different countries on the continent and how to take the lessons from these experiences and employ them particularly to Uganda’s growing oil industry.

The conference organized in partnership with Konrad Adenauer Stifftung took the form of a series of concise and thought-provoking discussions related to the theme “Resource Management: Making Oil Work for Africa.” The conference was held at a time when developments in the Ugandan oil industry were moving quickly, from the completion of the exploration phase to the set timeline of production and the need to an inclusive benefit from this sector. The discussion focused on what Uganda needed to do to avoid the “resource curse”.
