Africa'$ Natural Resources
Africa has a large quantity of natural resources. Nigeria and Sudan are the leading oil producing countries in Africa. In 2010, Sudan's oil exports were a near $9 billion. It has 15 diamond producing countries and produces 20 to 25% of the world's gold. Africa also has numerous copper and coal producing countries. Although Africa has an abundance of natural resources which are in high demand, majority of the continent is under developed. Many of the citizens of Africa do not reap the benefits from the sell of Africa's resources.

How the jeans market ruined Africa (Documentary, 2001)
The fate of two villages in East Africa, for generations both dependent on the cultivation of cotton, the most important natural resource for our clothing industry. One village cultivated its crop according modern agricultural standards with all its technical innovations and expensive imported chemicals – and is now dying in a trap of debt. The other village followed a tradional, organic method of cultivation and after only a few years is able to enjoy a certain modest affluence and confidence in the future.

"Recent discoveries of oil and natural gas in East Africa have created excited throughout the region over the potential dividend of revenues into government coffers", says Peter Ajak Director of the Centre for Strategic Analysis and Research (C-SAR). In Tanzania, natural resources have the potential to create $2.5 billion in yearly government revenues. (Brookings, 2016).

Sobriety needed as exploration and exploitation continues The government of Kenya has of late embarked on a journey to make use of the country's vast natural mineral resources, with experts intensifying efforts to establish the viability of these resources in determination of whether they are of commercial quantities.As this continues some communities and politicians from areas where these discoveries have been made, appear to have started playing local politics with the minerals, an aspect that could stand on the way of when and how those resources will help the country reap maximum benefits of these resources.Here are the issues surrounding some of these natural discoveries.

Africa: Interesting Facts
Africa is Not A Country, and other interesting facts about Africa To subscribe https://www.youtube.com/c/ThisOtherGuyBW?sub_confirmation=1 More Videos https://www.youtube.com/c/ThisOtherGuyBW/videos Twitter https://twitter.com/This_OtherGuy Facebook https://www.facebook.com/ThisOtherGuyOnline Background to This Video There are several different theories regarding the origin of the name “Africa”; Most etymologists believe the name is derived from Afri, the title for a group of people who dwelt in North Africa near Carthage around the third century B.C., and -ca, the Roman suffix for “country” or “land”; Ancient Greeks and Romans originally used the term “Africa” to apply only to the northern region of the continent. In Latin, the word Africa means “sunny,” and the word Aphrike in Greek means “without cold. Africa is the second largest continent in the world by area Covering 44, 391,162 square km in area, you can fit all of China, USA, India, and a large part of Europe in Africa combined; Being the second largest continent by population as well, Africa has more than a billion people; And they speak, by estimates, close to two thousand languages. No. None of these languages is called “African” Just like any other continent, Africans don’t all know each other; And we don’t all speak Swahili; Arabic (in various dialects) is the most common language spoken in Africa; And most Africans are fluent or conversant in more than one language; There are more French speaking people in Africa than in France. Africa is not Sahara Desert Or a wide stretch of rainforest We don’t have lions roaming in our backyards; We don’t ride elephants to school; We don’t walk around naked in the bush We don’t live in caves; And we don’t all live in huts If you imagine that houses in Africa have no plumbing and no toilets then you’re an idiot. The African continent is the wealthiest in Natural Resources The world’s largest reserves of precious metals are found in this continent With over 40% of the gold reserves, over 60% of the cobalt, and 90% of the platinum reserves all found in the continent. When we visit Europe or America from Africa, we don’t swim across the ocean; We take flights, like everyone else; And when aeroplanes come to Africa, they don’t land in the bush On your way from the Airport to the Hotel You probably won’t be carried by a donkey cart We have cities We have electricity We have schools And we know What Facebook is Central Eastern Africa is believed by most scientists to be the origin place of humans; Charles Darwin was the first scientist to suggest that the ancestors of modern human beings may have originated in Africa; This however, was rejected by the prejudicial Western World, until well into the twentieth century. The world’s largest land animal is the African elephant; The world’s tallest animal, the giraffe, lives in Africa; The fastest land animal in the world, the cheetah, lives in Africa; Africa is home to the world’s largest reptile, the Nile crocodile. Speaking of the Nile, it is 6, 650 kilometres long, making it the World’s longer river, and it is of course, located in Africa; 13% of the world’s hydroelectric power potential lies in the Congo River. It is the deepest river in the world and the most powerful river in Africa. This river has the potential to single-handedly power all of sub-Saharan Africa. The novel “Tarzan of the Apes”, set in Africa and published by American author Edgar Rice Burroughs in 1912, created such a compelling image of Africa and the book’s title character that a New Orleans newspaper writer only half-jokingly suggested that if Tarzan were to run for president of America in 1929, he would receive as many votes as the incumbent president Herbert Hoover. The deserts of Tunisia housed the original Star Wars movie sets for the film's planet Tatooine. More than 30 years after the first movie in the series, the sets are still very well preserved and visitors to Tunisia can even stay in Luke Skywalker’s home.

However, these projections come with a great deal of uncertainty, hence the need for economies to develop strong legal frameworks, infrastructure and development plans for proper utilization of their natural resource revenues for sustainable developments and survive subsequent macroeconomic and public revenue management challenges especially the “Dutch Disease” and “Resource Curse”.

Virunga, in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, is Africa's oldest national park, and home to half the continent's endangered mountain gorillas. It is one of the world's great heritage sites with three thousand square miles of precious flora and fauna. Since 2010, the British firm SOCO International has been exploring the region for oil, with the permission of the Congolese government. Activists have campaigned against SOCO, saying the company is putting both the wildlife and livelihoods of the regional people at risk. The Human Rights Watch has accused the government of DR Congo and the British oil company SOCO International of threatening those who want to protect the Virunga Park, and being behind the shooting of a park ranger. In April Emmanuel de Merode, Virunga's chief park ranger was shot in an ambush. Under pressure, SOCO, which denied any involvement in the attack, has agreed not to pursue further oil exploration.

Conflict and Cooperation in Eastern Africa
Conflict is often linked to the scarcity and abundance of natural resources throughout Africa—drought exacerbates Ethiopia and Kenya's civil conflicts, forest resources propped up Liberia's Charles Taylor, and minerals helped finance rebel armies in West and Central Africa. But there is another, less well-known side to these connections: rather than only leading to conflict, shared environmental resources also offer promising pathways to peace. Patricia Kameri-Mbote, former Open Society Institute Africa Policy Scholar at the Wilson Center and chair of the Department of Private Law at the University of Nairobi, addressed the potential for environmental peacemaking in Eastern Africa at an event co-sponsored by the Environmental Change and Security Program and the Africa Program on April 27, 2006.

Why Isn't Congo as Rich as Saudi Arabia? Massive Tax Evasion
The Democratic Republic of the Congo is rich in natural resources, yet the average citizen lives on only 72 cents a day. The foreign mining companies are getting rich while the general population is living in poverty. Many Congolese citizens are diging through the dirt on their hands and knees in search their fair share of the countries natural minerals. While there are taxes on the mining companies who benefit from the countries resources it is proving difficult to actually collect the money that is owed. Vocativ spoke to one tax inspector who explained that tax evasion and government fraud is rampant throughout the mining industry. So it seems that until those benefiting from the countries natural wealth start paying their fare share, many average citizens will have to continue digging through the mud to get by.
