Venue:

Virtual

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented unprecedented challenges worldwide. Resource-rich countries and the extractive industry spent much of 2020 grappling with  supply chain disruptions and identifying adequate responses to absorb unexpected shocks. However, the consequences of the pandemic account for just a fraction of the trends that are likely to change the mining sector. Operators are moving quickly to adopt new technologies—such as automation and digitization of mining processes—while the transition to a low-carbon economy and the rising global demand for green energy minerals are triggering reflection and discussions among stakeholders.

The IGF and CONNEX will host a two-part webinar to discuss the wave of new technologies entering the mining sector. The webinars will explore the extent to which contracts can be tech-proof or flexible, to allow the adoption of new technologies without affecting the relationship between mining companies, communities, and governments.
