Capacity Building and Training

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

We tailor our programs to the specific needs of member governments and are prepared to provide training on all aspects of mining policy.

We seek out local and regional experts to engage in the training sessions, which further helps to build regional capacity and ensures that the program reflects local perspectives and realities. We have also developed training partnerships in order to maximize the impact of our capacity-building resources.

There are currently no capacity building and training workshops scheduled. Please stay tuned.
