From the abstract:
This guide was prepared for ‘Legal tools for citizen empowerment’, a programme steered by the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED). It explores foreign investment in the natural resource sector in lower- and middle-income countries, and discusses options to structure investment contracts in ways that maximize the contribution of investments to sustainable development. This guide, based in part on training sessions carried out in Ghana and Central Asia, can be used as a background document for training sessions involving government officials, parliamentarians and civil society, as well as for those geared towards businesses interested in contributing to sustainable development.
