This chapter is concerned with the use of alternative regulations at international and municipal levels to promote transparency and good governance in resource-rich developing countries, with special emphasis on those in Africa. The premise here is that, if the various reform processes are successful, this evidence will come from the evolution of an informed and aware democratic society, necessary to provide the necessary checks and balances, and to demand accountability from its leaders. Successful reform should also lead to the eventual enactment and implementation of laws and regulations that strengthen the objectives of reform. Thus, the leadership and the citizens are indispensable elements for success.
