Environmental Governance of the Mining Sector

Information

Environmental Governance of the Mining Sector

This GOXI group welcomes all public, private and civil society partners interested in improving environmental governance of the mining sector within the context of the SDGs and Agenda 2030.

The group is designed to share experiences, raise awareness and improve skills for effective environmental public administration of the mining sector with a particular focus on how rule of law and human rights principles, including gender aspects, are incorporated and implemented.  This includes efforts to ensure more effective and meaningful participation, communication, transparency, and accountability related to managing environmental impacts across the mining cycle.

We encourage discussions, questions, and country examples that address the challenges and solutions linked to the environmental and human rights dimensions of mining.

Please refer to the FAQ Page for more information on how to contribute and how to start discussions on this Group's space.

This GOXI group is supported by the joint Swedish EPA-UNDP global programme on Environmental Governance for Sustainable Natural Resource Management* funded by SIDA.

More information about the SEPA - UNDP Programme

* SEPA (Swedish Environmental Protection Agency) and the UNDP (United Nations Development Programme) initiated a four-year programme funded by SIDA (Swedish International Development Corporation Agency) in an effort to integrate environmental and social concerns into broader sustainable development policy making.

The SEPA-UNDP programme will provide targeted support to four countries— Colombia, Kenya, Mongolia, and Mozambique — in coordination with environmental management projects already supporting the extractive industries in these countries. The programme will strengthen the environmental, gender, human rights, and rule of law dimensions of public administration work in large-scale mining sectors, working with ministries of the environment, mining, planning and finance, as well as other public and private stakeholders.
