The Alternative Mining Indaba Will Not be Muted!

THEME:

Building forward together, pivoting the extractives sector for adaptation and resilience against COVID-19

Overall goal of AMI 2021

An engaged African citizenry that uses its agency to demand legal reforms; transparency and accountability and responsible supply chains in the mining sector for the benefit of current and future generations.

To provide mining affected communities from across the African continent with a safe space to dialogue and seek solutions to their concerns with the mining sector. In particular, the 2021 AMI will focus on analysing the impact of COVID-19 on the extractive industries and in particular communities impacted by mining.

AMI objectives

Specific objectives:

  • To strengthen the platform for analysing the impact of COVID-19 on the extractive industries and in particular communities impacted by mining.
  • To create an opportunity for sharing experiences on how to deal with and mitigate COVID-19 impacts on mining communities and civil society organizations
  • To strengthen learning, exchange, sharing and solidarity between and amongst mining impacted communities, faith based and civil society organisations at local, national, sub-regional and international levels for holding governments and industries accountable
  • To bolster the AMI as multi-stakeholder engagement platform for key topical policy and practice issues affecting the governance of the extractive sector and sustainable development in Africa such as the Africa Mining Vision (AMV), AMGF, UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human rights and global tax reforms
  • To co-create the way forward on new ways of working and adapting to the new COVID-19 reality for mining communities, faith based and civil society organisations
