Mining can be a major force for combatting poverty, which is why our work—leveraging the benefits of mining for sustainable development and environmental management— has never been more vital.
Governments join the IGF because we deal with the issues that matter to them. We help governments assess their policy frameworks to identify gaps and build on opportunities. Then, with our help, members can design a mining regime that attracts investment and ensures benefits are shared. Our workshops are designed to build capacity, so members learn how to develop and implement programs that meet their evolving needs.
Our 2018 Annual Report dives into our commitment to making sure mining’s benefits are not just shared but leveraged for sustainable development by our member countries.
