Community & Economic Development

Africa Oil commits to contributing in a positive way to the overall social and economic well being of citizens in our host countries. We recognize that much of this benefit will be gained through local employment, local procurement, and taxes and royalties generated by our operations and paid to the host government.

Community & Economic Policy

We will deliver Community and Economic Development programs designed specifically to supplement these benefits by delivering tangible and sustainable development opportunities to targeted populations through a three-tiered approach:

  • Community Infrastructure – health, education & water
  • Sustainable livelihoods – enhanced food security, improved household incomes
  • Economic development – wealth & employment creation

Activity in these areas may be short, medium or long-term and cover a range of initiatives. They will be designed and implemented in consultation with local communities, local and national authorities, donor organizations and NGOs.
