The International Resource Panel (IRP) is developing a report on governance of the mining sector for improved social and environmental outcomes.

A series of consultations with relevant stakeholders are organised to better understand their needs and help inform the content of the report.

Stakeholders are invited to provide feedback on a short consultation document (available below) summarising the main premise of the report: the proposal for a new governance framework for the extractive sector referred to as the "Sustainable Development License to Operate". 

A first in-person consultation session will be held during the Annual General Meeting of the Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals, Metals and Sustainable Development (IGF) on 17 October, 2017, in Geneva, Switzerland.  Participants will hear from and exchange views with two of the lead authors of the report:

Antonio Pedro, Director of the Sub-Regional Office of Central Africa at the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa

Bruno Oberle - Professor of Green Economy at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne
