Overall goal of AMI 2020

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 2020 AMI will focus on discussing and better understanding the link between climate change and the extractive industries and how to deal with the rising challenge.

  • Providing safe spaces for engagement and seeking solutions especially for mining affected communities
  • Provide a space to dialogue with national governments and extractive industries on key concerns of affected communities
  • Increase and strengthen dialogue with key African governments and mining industries’ representatives
  • Further the discourse and demands on Social and environmental accountability, and respect for human rights in the mining sector
  • Initiatives of building communities of practice on corporate accountability cases in extractives sector in Africa
