Event Description

Join us Monday, February 4, from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m., for our Mining Indaba Sustainability Forum. This year’s theme will focus on impact assessment and management in the mining sector.

Visit the Indaba website for full details about this unique event and registration.

Our session will address questions such as:

  • What is the optimal timeline to review an environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA) report?
  • How do ESIAs transition from exploration to exploitation?
  • How should citizen engagement be carried out throughout the mining life cycle?
  • When should the closure plan be submitted?
  • What is the reality in implementation and monitoring of plans?
  • Which institutional and technical capacities are needed in ESIA processes?

Panelists for our interactive session include:

  • Nicole Biekse, Head of Programme, Mining for Sustainable Development, Transparency International
  • Dawn Brock, Senior Programme Officer, International Council of Metal Mining (ICMM)
  • Kristi Disney, Executive Director, Sustainable Development Strategies Group (SDSG)
  • Pierre Gratton, CEO, Mining Association of Canada (MAC)
  • Katja Hummel, Senior Policy Officer, Raw Materials, German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ)

This session will also feature a discussion on our ESIA global practices findings which will be the key input of our upcoming Guidance for Governments on ESIA.

Team members will also be on hand at the IGF stand in the main exhibition hall in CTICC from February 4 to 7 to answer your questions and discuss IGF activities. Please stop by for more details on specific programs and activities, and how you can get involved with the IGF.
