RWI and the Centre of Excellence for Extractive Industries Governance in Francophone Africa (CEGIEAF) is pleased to announce the third Summer School on Governance of Extractive Industries. The two-week course will be held at the Catholic University of Central Africa's campus of Ekounou-Ayene in Yaoundé, Cameroon, from August 12-23, 2013.

The Summer School is open to members of civil society, journalists and parliamentarians involved in the promotion of better governance of the oil, gas and mining industries in their country for at least two years. 

The two-week course will comprehensively cover the extractive industry value chain: decision to extract, contracts, legislation, taxation, collection and management of revenues, social and environmental impacts, impact of extractive resources on development. It includes preparatory activities, a field trip to a producing area and individualized support or mentorship after the summer course.

RWI will provide full and partial scholarships to some participants for the course. Anyone interested in participating in the program is invited to apply no later than March 15, 2013.
