Professor Peter Cameron, Director of CEPMLP, who led the $1.5 million project, said: “Poor choices are often made by governments through a lack of knowledge of experiences in countries with similar circumstances.

“The shortcomings in development outcomes in natural resources can result from secrecy, asymmetry of information, poor prioritisation and planning, weak institutional capacity and a lack of checks and balances”.
