9th Alternative Mining Indaba

On 5-7th February 2018, about 600 participants drawn from non-governmental organisations and community activists met at the 9th Alternative Mining Indaba in Cape Town, South Africa. The three-day meeting was held under the theme  “Making Natural Resources Work for the People: Towards Just Legal, Policy and Institutional Reforms.” 

The conversations which ranged from Gender and Legal ReformsThe Role of Parliamentarians in providing oversight in the extractives sector among others, were fruitful and laid a solid foundation for the Declaration which was handed over to ICMM’s Tom Butler, Elize Strydom from the Chamber of Mines  (South Africa), Paul Msoma from the African Union Commission and Alex Grose, the Managing Director of the African Mining Indaba.
