The extractive industries (EI) sector occupies an outsize space in the economies of many developing countries. Policy makers, economists and public finance professionals working in such countries are frequently confronted with issues that require an in-depth understanding of the sector, its economics, governance, and policy challenges, as well as the implications of natural resource wealth for fiscal and public financial management. The objective of the two-volume Essentials for Policy Makers, Economists and Public Finance Professionals, published in the World Bank Studies series, is to provide a concise overview of the EI-related topics these professionals are likely to encounter. This first volume, The Extractive Industries Sector, provides an overview of issues core to EI economics; discusses key components of the sector's governance, policy, and institutional frameworks; and identifies the public sector's EI-related financing obligations. Its discussion of EI economics covers the valuation of subsoil assets, the economic interpretation of ore, and the structure of energy and mineral markets. The volume maps the responsibilities of relevant government entities, and outlines the characteristics of the EI sector's legal and regulatory frameworks. Specific, key functions of the sector are briefly discussed, as are the financial structures that underpin environmental and social safeguards; investment of public revenues generated from oil, gas, or minerals; as well as extractive-based economic diversification. The authors hope that policy makers, economists and public finance professionals working in resource-rich countries?including decision makers in ministries of finance, international organizations, and other relevant entities?will find the volume useful to their understanding and analysis of the EI sector.
