Making Mining Work for Development: An Open Discussion

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will build on both of the mining stream sessions that occured yesterday, diving into the big question of how mining could "work" for development (or if it even can.) What do we need to answer to understand this opportunity? What conditions need to be in place for mining to advance development outcomes? What are the deal-breakers for concerns of human rights or the environment?
