The first Parliamentary ‘Inquiry into Australia’s relationship with the countries of Africa’ was released in June 2011 by the Joint Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade. The inquiry noted that to distinguish Australia from other ‘Western nations’, a broad strategy comprising aid, development, security, trade, and investment should be implemented through the considerable natural resource investment and experience in corporate social responsibility of Australian companies . This discussion paper outlines areas of significant cross-sector collaborative potential between Australian resource companies and agricultural, environmental, and social elements unique to sub-Saharan Africa.
