Founder & CEO Kina Advisory Ltd.
Rosalind Kainyah MBE | The Global African Investment Summit [cached]
Rosalind Kainyah has extensive experience in government relations, political risk management, social investment and corporate and environmental law, focusing on the mining and oil industries in Africa. She has held senior positions with Tullow Oil plc and De Beers and advised governments on policy and legislative matters. She has a BA in English from the University of Ghana and an LLM from University College London. She was called to the Bar of England and Wales (Gray's Inn) in 1988 and is a member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.
Rosalind has a strong reputation for advising companies on how best to contribute to the socio-economic development of the countries in which they operate, to ensure the long-term profitability and sustainability of their businesses. In 2013 she established Kina Advisory Limited to help her clients navigate their way through the economic, political and social risks of working in Africa in order to strengthen the in-country relationships required to establish the companies as long-term partners of choice and underpin their business success.
Combining her legal, external relationship and issues management skills, Rosalind has effectively represented companies in negotiations with governments in sub-Saharan Africa. Alongside legal advice, she ensured that they identified and managed the political and social risks required to achieve their business goals, while contributing to national development goals and aspirations. She achieved this through effective stakeholder engagements with governments, local businesses, NGOs and impacted communities, social investment projects and other risk mitigation and opportunity enhancing measures to support the companies in contractual negotiations. She also provided innovative solutions to contractual disputes when they arose.
Rosalind has a wide network of contacts and relationships, both in and outside Africa, covering companies, governments, multilateral organisations (such as the World Bank, the International Finance Corporation and the UK Department for International Development), non-government organisations (national and international), academia, members of the diplomatic corps and other influencers.
She is currently advising Tullow on a range of issues relating to sustainability and external affairs. She is also providing advice and assistance to Kofi Annan, former UN Secretary General, and his Africa Progress Panel (APP) on how best to engage the private sector in implementing recommendations of the APP's 2013 report on the extractives industry. Rosalind is an advisor to the APP on their forthcoming 2014 report which is examining the most effective means of financing inclusive and sustainable development and growth in Africa, with particular focus on the agriculture and fisheries sectors.
Rosalind sits on the Global Advisory Board of the Africa Leadership Network and is a Trustee of The Resurgo Trust, which helps communities tackle complex issues and overcome social challenges through social ventures. She has been a Trustee of the Africa Center for Economic Transformation and of The Africa-America Institute. Rosalind has participated as a speaker and panellist in numerous conferences and workshops on the private sector and development in Africa.
Rosalind's experience in law and external affairs gives her an in-depth understanding of both the economic and social impact of companies doing business in Africa. hrough her extensive experience of the extractive industries and practical knowledge of business in Africa, she provides her clients with highly credible and competent advice and assistance.
