1. Introduction:
The African Development Bank Group (AfDB) places renewed emphasis on Natural Resources Management as a transformational platform, emphasizing the role of natural resources in widening access to resources, promoting inclusive growth and transition to green growth. In order to respond to the challenges facing sustainable management and use of Africa’s natural resources, the AfDB created the African Natural Resources Center (ECNR). The ECNR is a non-lending entity whose mandate is to assist African governments maximise development outcomes derived from natural resources by boosting the capacity of the governments to achieve inclusive and sustainable growth from natural resources.
One of the ways in which the Regional Member Countries (RMCs) can benefit from the natural resources is by using the resources to industrialize and add value to the produced raw materials to provide useable products. In addition, this creates employment and by participating in such businesses, this could yield higher returns. The decisions on value addition and participation in business opportunities has to be objective and based on reliable information. It is therefore important that the underlying factors in evaluating these opportunities are well
understood. It is for this reason therefore that the ECNR has planned to undertake a value chain analysis for the oil sector.
ECNR is currently in the process of finalising value chain analysis studies on; Natural Gas, Iron ore, Diamond and Tilapia Fish. These ongoing studies will provide a perspective on how to approach the particular subject matter of Oil Value Chain Analysis.
