Ghana: Political Economy Analysis for the Western Region Coastal Foundation Inception Phase
William Kingsmill led an inception phase political economy analysis for the Ghana Western Region Coastal Foundation during the project's inception phase. Oil and gas production in the region started in 2010 and have transformed local development prospects. The report advised on how to promote extractive industry-led development, while ensuring high quality governance and avoiding the risks of the resource curse. It provided guidelines on how the programme could act as a knowledge broker and facilitator of multi-stakeholder coalitions bringing together local and regional governments, oil companies, private sector and civil society participants.
