Africa sits atop considerable reserves of energy and natural resources. However, the continent still grapples with the difficulty of translating these to long-term energy access and socio-economic prosperity for its people. A part of this problem lies in the absence of effective legal and regulatory frameworks that should have ensured the optimal harnessing of these resources for countries on the continent. Other complex issues such as the necessity to ensure that energy produced is clean and that natural resources extracted or mined are carried out sustainably further exacerbate this problem.
