Advocacy on Mining and Extractive Industries

The Extractive Industries (EI), especially mining and gas and oil production, are a major source of revenue for many African countries, with the potential to drive local economic development. However, their role in conflict and environmental degradation often outweighs the opportunities that EI presents. The critical challenge is to generate shared growth that translates into sustainable local economic development and leads to the reduction of poverty. Please join us to discuss these issues with:

Martin Lokanc, Senior Mining Specialist, Energy & Extractives Global Practice, World Bank Group: The socio-economic and environmental implications of mining in Africa

Daisy Mukarakate, Regional Climate Policy Advisor, UNDP Regional Centre for Africa: The process of transition towards sustainable clean economies in the mining sector
Doreen Stabinsky, Faculty of Global Environmental Politics, College of the Atlantic: Unmasking false climate solutions in mining and related industries

Ikhaya Lodge, Wandel Street, Dunkley Square, Gardens, Cape Town
