Key Documents on Natural Resources


This page provides key UN and NGO documents on natural resources and conflict. NGOs have helped bring resource conflict to the attention of the Security Council, which has taken measures to embargo the flow of natural resources from conflict zones. The Council has also commissioned expert panels that have investigated natural resource abuses and issued remarkably frank and revealing reports. NGOs have issued many reports of their own that have exposed some of the people profiting from resource conflicts, from sanctions-busting corporations and traders to government officials complicit in illegal resource exploitation.
