sharing in governance of extractive industries
Can anyone think of good (or bad) practice examples of host governments promoting local employment in the mining sector? Which policy settings and strategies do you think are effective / ineffective?
Together with the International Institute for Sustainable Development, we're providing input into a new guidance note for the Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals, Metals and Sustainable Development.
Any thoughts, provocations and ramblings are welcome here, or you can check out our outstandingly short survey: https://lnkd.in/g_rrZKC

The Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals, Metals and Sustainable Development (IGF) has been mandated by its members to produce guidance on local content policies in the mining sector. The guidance will be primarily aimed at governments, though it will also discuss the roles that other stakeholders might play in concert with government action.
In support of the guidance, The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) is working with Leapfrog International to review policy options for promoting direct local employment in the mining sector.
This simple and exceptionally short questionnaire is a way to engage governments, mining companies, civil society organisations and other stakeholders on how to best promote direct local employment in the mining sector. Through the questionnaire, we hope to identify examples of effective local employment policies and practices. We also hope to identify the enabling and contextual factors that enhance local employment in the mining sector.
Participation in this questionnaire is voluntary and all responses will be reported at an aggregated level.
