Abstract

Host governments and communities commonly expect that the extractive industries provide jobs and contribute to skills development, especially in Sub-Saharan African countries where many young people join local labour markets in record numbers every year. This article reviews the literature and offers an empirically informed situation analysis on the demand and supply characteristics of the jobs and skills associated with the sector. Against this background, it discusses some challenges and implications for skills development interventions and offers some insights from the E4D/SOGA programme.
