Business Partners for Development Natural Resources Cluster

he Natural Resources Cluster (oil, gas and mining sector) of the World Bank's Business Partners for Development programme was operative from 1998 to 2002. The $3 million action research programme produced practical examples, based on 'focus projects' around the world, of how three-way partnerships involving companies, government authorities and civil society organisations can be a more effective means of reducing social risks and promoting community development. Working in different countries and at different stages of project development the performance of these 'tri-sector partnerships' was systematically tested in terms of both business benefit and development impact.
