Economic Impact

Resources may be finite, but the positive impacts and benefits derived from their development can be broad and long-lasting.

Many large scale resource projects benefit society through employment, training and skills, the development of local supply chains, improved infrastructure, health, education, electricity, energy and access to services.

Governments must plan for this wider impact and create a vision setting out the role of the natural resource sector in the country’s broader development plan.
