Resource extraction projects stimulate social, cultural and economic change in indigenous communities. It must be assessed whether, and how, development processes might compete and conflict with the market objectives of multinational corporations, and the organisational and moral principles of these communities. The need for increased social accountability in the planning and development of natural resource extraction projects must always be emphasised.
