sharing in governance of extractive industries
A report recently released by the Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining at The University of Queensland, Australia, explores the drivers for participation and the main design characteristics influencing the effectiveness of sustainability certification schemes in the mining and minerals sector.
This report identified that participants interviewed have varied expectations and ideas about the drivers for participation in certification schemes, and also how different design characteristics influence the effectiveness of sustainability certification schemes. There was also a range of views on how these differences influence outcomes on the ground. Participants provided different insights and recommendations regarding nine different main topics: Stakeholder Participation; Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) mechanisms; Interoperability; Transparency; Assurance; Standards; Sanctions for Non-Compliance; Local Development; and Capacity Building.
The report has been published in English and can be found here.
All the best,
