Event Details
October 12, 2023


This webinar held on October 12 discussed how countries can adapt their mining tax policies to respond to climate change, automation, and the global tax justice movement. The webinar also explored the risks and opportunities these trends present for the mining sector.

Key discussion questions included:

  • How can tax policies help the mining sector work to slow global warming?
  • Are current financial benefit sharing mechanisms (royalty and corporate income tax) fit for purpose?
  • How can resource-rich countries adapt their mining tax regimes to seize opportunities and manage risks facing the sector?
  • How can global tax cooperation include the mining sector (if at all)?
