Mitigation and transformation - artisanal oil refining in the Niger Delta in Nigeria

In this video, Dr Pallavi Roy, describes how a strategy of mitigation and transformation can be applied in artisanal oil refining in the Niger Delta.

In this case study, Dr Pallavi Roy explains that in the artisanal oil refining sector in the Niger Delta, where corruption is widespread and intractable, there aren’t feasible opportunities for anti-corruption. In this situation, a strategy of mitigating the damaging effects of the intractable corruption and identifying opportunities for transformation to other livelihood activities and energy provision can offer a route away from the current high corruption sector.
