  1. Inclusive business practices in Africa's extractive industries

    08 February 2016

    The policy note presents key factors contributing to inclusive growth linked to the extractive industries in Africa, reflecting on the distinctive yet complementary roles of governments and multinational enterprises. The document considers the types of economic linkages to local communities and national economies that contribute towards employment, enterprise development, infrastructure, and ultimately to the economic transformation required for sustainable development. The factors are explained with reference to lessons learned from African countries at various stages of development of their mining, oil and gas sectors.

    This annotated bibliography provides a succinct overview of the significant amount of research, analysis, and guidance documents on the activities of multinational enterprises (MNEs) that has been published by the ILO and others from 2005 to 2015. The publication presents a solid collection of works relevant to the ILO MNE Declaration and provides a range of information on labour and employment issues to parties interested in translating the principles of the Declaration into action. It will be of interest to ILO constituents, ILO staff members and researchers who deal with issues related to investment, MNEs and decent work. Those interested in MNEs, CSR, the role of the private sector in development and FDI more broadly, may also find this bibliography useful in their work.
