          This paper seeks to contribute to the global debate on the political and institutional contexts that enable impoverished countries to mobilize domestic resources for social development. It analyses the impact of mining on resource mobilization for social development in Nicaragua. The mining industry in Nicaragua provides some economic benefits. However, these benefits have been overshadowed by setbacks related to social and environmental impacts. The paper also points out that current political and institutional aspects weaken the state’s ability to mobilize resources for social development from the mining industry.
