Whitepapers and Briefings

Our first paper, From Curse to Cure: The Impact of Energy Exploration & Production in the Lake Tanganyika Basin, was officially released at the iPAD Oil and Gas Forum in Kinshasa, DRC on September 10, 2014. Download the full document here!

Our goal in publishing this paper is to work with all appropriate stakeholders to bring transparency, good governance, local content and dialogue into the public arena. With our eyes and ears on the ground, over these past years we have come to understand that Lake Tanganyika lies at the very hub of a complex story in which natural resources, peace and security, development and human well-being, environment and fresh water issues must all be kept in balance.

Stay tuned for our next white paper, “Water-Based Health Care: Have We Missed the Boat?” which will provide an overview of issues facing the hundreds of millions of people who live near water, and highlight innovative approaches to make the case for a new model of healthcare for coastal and water-based communities.
