Registration is now open for the IGF’s 19th Annual General Meeting (AGM), the leading international forum for government officials working on mining policy.

The theme of the 19th AGM is Sharing Mining Benefits in the Energy Transition, and the Secretariat is organizing a series of expert-led sessions seeking to answer key policy questions facing resource-rich nations this year.

The event is scheduled for November 7–9, 2023 and will be hosted by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development at the Palais des Nations Geneva, Switzerland. The IGF will also host a 1-day workshop for government officials immediately preceding the AGM on Monday, November 6, at a location to be confirmed in Geneva.

The IGF supports more than 80 member countries in advancing their sustainable development goals through effective laws, policies, and regulations for the mining sector. We help governments take action to develop inclusive and gender-equitable practices, optimize financial benefits, support livelihoods, and safeguard the environment. The International Institute for Sustainable Development has hosted the IGF Secretariat since October 2015. Core funding is provided by the governments of Canada and the Netherlands.
