sharing in governance of extractive industries
In 2014, Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining implemented a project, funded by the Asia Pacific Network for Global Change Research, to identify risks from climatic changes for Mongolia’s two primary economic sectors – mining and herding and build in-situ capacity in these sectors to adapt to changing conditions with a view to reducing the resulting loss and damage (L+D) through both incremental and transformative changes. By bringing together these key economic enterprises, the project aimed to highlight that despite being in conflict in the past over access to environmental resources such as land and water, there is much scope for drawing out synergies between the two sectors in relation to exchanging resources, knowledge and skills.
The project undertook workshops to bring together multiple stakeholders to not only take stock of current knowledge, resources and instruments available to deal with climatic disasters but also address their concerns including current and potential risks from climate change, stakeholder priorities and knowledge gaps in relation to building resilience to natural disasters and strategies for developing practical implementation and partnership-building plans, going forward into the future.
The report for the project is downloadable from the following link http://www.apn-gcr.org/resources/items/show/1938
