  • To advocate for transparent, equitable and just extractives practices in the management, governance and distribution of national resources through policy and legislative reform.
  • To create meaningful decision-making processes for communities, advocating for just national and regional policies and corporate practices.
  • To provide space for engagement for the communities affected by mining, inter-faith communities, governments, CSO’s and private sector to share information and experiences.
