Customizing Legal Data for Africa's Mining Sector
About My Work
The African Mining Legislation Atlas (AMLA) is a legislation gathering, organization and dissemination project with three main activities: i) creation of a free online legislative framework platform for Africa's mining sector with interactive features to provide comparative data on mining laws and regulations; ii) production of a mining law guiding template to assist countries in the preparation or revision of their mining laws; and iii) capacity building through training of law students, legal professionals and lawmakers a) in the use of the platform and the guiding template and b) on overall issues in mining law. The alpha version of the platform is available at www.a-mla.org.

The objective of the Project is to support African countries in maximizing mineral resource benefits through i) promoting transparency, accessibility and comparison of Africa’s mining laws; ii) facilitating the preparation, revision and implementation of mining laws; iii) providing a living database that will catalyze research and policy debates on legal and regulatory issues; and (iv) promoting the development of local expertise on African mining laws.
