This study addresses the issue of greater cooperation between governments and the private sector in the development of the mining sector in Africa. Central to this cooperation is the increase of private capital flows to Africa which the New Partnership for African Development (NEPAD) pinpoints as an essential component of a sustainable long term approach to filling the resource gap. The study addresses the issue of low level flow of private capital to Africa compared to other developing regions and attributes this to investors' perception of Africa as a "high risk"continent.
