Oil and gas could bring billions to countries in East Africa – but only if used responsibly.

Oxfam America and the Brookings Institution hosted a conference yesterday on the East African oil and gas boom. Speakers from government, the private sector, civil society, think tanks and academia examined what this means for the region. You can view a summary of the event via a slideshow below, or read the Storify transcript here.

Videos from the event are also available on Brooking’s website.
