The Federal Government of Nigeria has obtained a credit from the International Development Association (IDA) to fund the Mineral Sector Support for Economic Diversification (MinDiver) Project. The project has the following development objectives:
- To improve the attractiveness of the Nigerian Mining sector, as a driver for economic diversification, for long-term private sector investment in the exploration and production of minerals.
- To create a globally competitive sector capable of contributing to wealth creation, providing jobs and advancing our social and human security.
The Federal Government of Nigeria has embarked on an economic diversification campaign with the aim of leveraging on the Nation’s vast natural resources to diversify the economy from the oil and gas sector to achieve economic emancipation.
The sector’s growth and contributions to GDP have remained less than ideal, accounting for only about 0.33% in 2015. To address this, the Ministry of Mines and Steel Development (MMSD) recently developed a roadmap for mining growth and development with objectives to deepen sector reforms, attract new investors and collaborate with a wide network of partners and stakeholders to rejuvenate the sector and build a prosperous economy propelled by inflows from the solid minerals sector
The overall objective of the MinDiver Project is to link with the Roadmap and enhance the mining sector’s contribution to the economy by strengthening key government institutions, improving information infrastructure and knowledge, and fostering domestic investment in the sector.
