Governance in Africa Conversations: Silas Siakor Wed, 2013-12-11 05:22

In 2004, Silas Kpanan’Ayoung Siakor officially launched the Sustainable Development Institute (SDI) to empower local communities in Liberia to have an active role in natural resources governance. In 2006, Siakor received the Goldman Environmental Prize, the world’s largest prize honouring grassroots environmentalists, for his fearsome advocacy.

In this Governance in Africa Conversations podcast produced by the School of Oriental and African Studies(SOAS)/Mo Ibrahim Foundation, Siakor reflects on Liberia’s successes and challenges in natural resources governance with fellow Liberian, SOAS Ph.D. student Robtel Neajai Pailey.
