Talking Points on Platinum Symposium

IntroductionFor civil society working to influence policy and practice reforms tailored to strengthen linkages between mining and sustainable development, stakeholder engagement is a critical piece of the jigsaw puzzle.

Return of Anjin To Marange Diamond Fields: the blindside of Zimbabwe is open for business agenda

Government is on the overdrive to attract investment to stimulate desperately needed socio- economic development.

IntroductionZimbabwe is open for business. A mantra that the President seizes every opportunity to tell, to rebrand and prime the country for economic growth that delivers jobs and quality service delivery – an upper middle income by 2030. But, how open is Zimbabwe for business?To explore this question and to perhaps proffer alternative policy and practice reforms for making a point that charity begins at home on ease of doing business reforms, attention is paid to artisanal and small-scale…See More
