Event Description

Monday 3 July 2017, 4-6pm

Supporting Mining Firms to Contribute to Development

Venue: 32L.G.03, Lincoln’s Inn Fields
Speakers: Luke Balleny and Jeff Geipel
Chair: Professor James Putzel

International Development is excited to host a discussion of a new initiative focused on improving the economic impact of mineral extraction. The initiative, which has its roots in the Development Studies programme, aims to improve “backward economic linkages” from the mining industry in eveloping countries.

Mining Shared Value (MSV), a venture of Engineers Without Borders Canada, in collaboration with Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, will present their new “Mining Local Procurement Reporting Mechanism (LPRM)” that seeks to address the gaps in current reporting frameworks and sustainability systems. It helps standardize the way the sector and host countries talk about the issue in order to:

• Improve management and increase company performance related to local procurement at their sites;
• Empower local communities and countries working to improve economic and social outcomes related to mining through local procurement; and 

• Increase transparency in the mining and extractives sector.

The event will be followed by a drinks reception
