Since 2011, the Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment (CCSI) has extensively researched how mining-related infrastructure can best be leveraged for economic development. A first working paper sets outthe findings for mineral railways and ports. A second working paper extends the research to power infrastructure. Both are available for download from CCSI’s website at: http://ccsi.columbia.edu/work/projects/leveraging-infrastructure-investments-for-development/. In 2012-2013, CCSI collaborated with the World Bank to systematically assess the potential and challenges of power-mining integration in Sub-Saharan Africa. To that end, CCSI built the Africa Power-Mining Database in 2013: it contains 455 projects in 28 Sub-Saharan African countries with a minimum of US$250 million gross value of ores reserves, in all project phases, spanning the years 2000-2020. This database estimates the demand for power in 2000, 2012 and 2020 and identifies the range of past, present and future power sourcing arrangements for the 455 projects. The study also includes an assessment of the different institutional settings and policy instruments that have the potential to lead to improved integration between mines’ investment plansin power infrastructure and governments’ plans for national power development.
