Tax revenues are likely to be the core benefit of mineral extraction for host States. To promote mining for development, States must design mineral fiscal regimes that consider the interests of a wide range of stakeholders. Their choices have major implications for public finance, development and sustainability.

This course will help policy makers, managers in private sector companies, and activists understand these choices and their implications.

Testimonios de los estudiantes

I am enjoying it thoroughly. I lecture Mine Financial Valuation to the 4th Year Mining Engineering Students. Whilst I talk about many of the topics you are covering – the way you have presented it in the Mawedo case study really brings it to life. It has certainly added to my own understanding of some of the issues around how taxes are manipulated and I am sure this will assist me when I present the topics next year to my class.

I want to thank you dearly for the edX course, 'Mining for Development: the Taxation Linkage' I really enjoyed the introduction into the Mawedo world and look forward to other courses you teach as you have a brilliant ability to convey complex topics. (Masters student, UCT)
