Capacity Building and Training

The IGF Secretariat provides capacity-building training and workshops to member countries upon request.

We design capacity building and training programs to improve our developing country members’ skills, knowledge, and abilities to implement and maintain good governance in mining that considers the full environmental, social, and economic context.

We work with local and regional experts to ensure programs reflect on-the-ground perspectives and realities.
