Handbook On Measuring Employment From Extractive Industry Investments

Additional Tags: Resources and Tools

CCSI prepared a report titled Handbook On Measuring Employment From Extractive Industry Investments. It outlines two modeling techniques used to estimate employment multipliers: 1) The input-output (IO) model, and 2) The computable general equilibrium (CGE) model. It explains the advantages, disadvantages, necessary inputs, and results associated with each model. Specifically using the IO model, the… read more

Employment from Mining and Investments in Land for Agriculture

The employment potential of investments in extractive industry projects and land acquisitions for agriculture is often touted both by governments and by companies in support of investor-friendly policies and large-scale investments in natural resources. CCSI is examining how job numbers are calculated, which factors influence job creation, and the quality and sustainability of these jobs, as well as whether job creation generated from these investments is net positive.

Downstream Beneficiation of Extractive Resources

Additional Tags: Research

This research looks at the economic prerequisites that attract first degree downstream beneficiation industries, such as steel mills, and the extent to which these industries have contributed to further domestic linkages in the past, and assesses whether it makes sense to provide large incentives for these investments.
