Extractive industry according to the businessdictionary.com refers to processes that involve the extraction of raw materials from the earth to be used by consumers.
It consists of any operations that remove metals, mineral and aggregates from the earth. Examples of extractive processes include oil and gas extraction, mining, dredging and quarrying.
About 3.5 billion people according to World Bank live in countries rich in oil, gas or minerals.
With good governance and transparent management, the banks says the revenues from extractive industries can have an impact on reducing poverty and boosting shared prosperity, while respecting community needs and the environment.
