This center champions API’s research and provided a platform for policy dialogue on natural resources and environmental issues especially in Africa. Far from being a boom, the discovery of natural resources such as oil, gas and water in many parts of Africa has been a bane, fueling conflicts and undermining development and environmental stability. Conflicts have complicated existing environmental challenges such as droughts, famines, climate change and poaching of wildlife and other resources. API, therefore, established the Center as a platform for sharing ideas and policy perspectives on the best way to manage natural resources and the environment.
