New Technologies in Mining as a Catalyst for Social Development
Our Mining Policy Framework informs the Secretariat’s capacity building, technical training, events, and publications designed to help policy-makers address challenges related to technology-driven changes in mining to support:
- Communities acclimating to the sector-wide restructuring as some jobs are lost, fewer low- and semi-skilled jobs are available, and newly created or better-paying high-skill jobs emerge.
- Mining technologies as an opportunity to strengthen community resilience.
- Skills development and education for locals in mining-affected communities to ensure new jobs are accessible.
