CEDA would place extractive issues at the center of the development discourse through evidence based research, policy analysis and advocacy, citizens mobilization and training. CEDA would also focus on developing the capacities of the next generation of civic and oversight leaders across the continent to continuously demand good management of mineral resources in a transparent and accountable manner. CEDA would act as an interface for technocrats, professionals, practitioners, academia, politicians, legislators, industry experts, donor agencies and broad range of civil society and community leaders to promote learning and sharing of ideas, knowledge, skills and experience. CEDA would tap into the great and extensive network of experienced partners and professionals within Africa and beyond. This is to build the needed trust to enhance our result and agenda of making extractives work for Africa.
Create awareness and cultivate a deeper understanding of Africa’s mineral wealth and its transformative potential
