This research data pertains to in-depth analysis of extractives’ corporate social responsibility [CSR] in North-Western Zambia and its impact on local sustainable development. It relied on case study approach to understand processes and outcomes of CSR investments by sampled mines. The study relied on both primary, secondary, qualitative and quantitative sources of data to triangulate perspectives. The case study explored four dimensions of CSR: how decisions and prioritisation of CSR were made; level of stakeholders’ engagement and participation; appropriateness and viability of performance monitoring and accountability systems of sampled mines on CSR commitments; and outcomes [benefits and costs] to host communities from CSR; and factors underlying associated outcomes.
