This webinar explores tools and strategies to understand and act upon the effects of mining on human rights, including the right to a safe and healthy environment of different groups in society, across time, and across different localities. We will introduce the ecosystem services framework and explain how it can be used to enhance public decision-making and strengthen Environmental Impact Assessment procedures, thus preventing the negative effects of mining. The webinar will also focus on the environmental licensing functions and tasks of government institutions at the national and regional level. Using Colombia as a case study, we will analyze the role of public administration in promoting good governance and preventing environmental harm by the mining sector.
From Oct. - Dec. 2017, we will host a webinar series on Environmental Governance of the Mining Sector. It addresses environmental governance issues and the prevention of socio-environmental mining conflicts, and highlights experiences and lessons learned from several initiatives worldwide. This webinar series is hosted by the NBSAP Forum, the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, GOXI (a platform for sharing in governance of the extractive industries) and UNDP. All webinars are available in English. We will offer one webinar each in Spanish, Portuguese and Mongolian. We describe the sessions and language offerings below.
