Expanding Local Economic Opportunity Through Beneficiation
In September 2013, Business Action for Africa, Harvard Kennedy School CSR Initiative and The Partnering Initiative launched a report entitled "A New Global Partnership with Business: Building a Post-2015 Development Framework to Achieve Sustainable Prosperity in Africa".
The report highlighted a set of cross-sector partnerships, where businesses, government, NGOs and/or international development agencies are combining their resources to achieve specific development and business benefits.
This case study looks at how De Beers is expanding local economic opportunity through beneficiation.
