CIRDI Presents Mining Conflicts Workshop at PDAC


Join Rob Stevens, Tony Andrews and other Canadian and international experts for an informative workshop: Mining conflict pathways and the roles of government, industry, communities and NGOs on Wednesday, March 7, from 9-10:30 a.m. in Toronto. The workshop is part of the CSR Event Series at the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) annual conference and is free of charge to PDAC delegates.

This workshop will examine the interplay between the main actors in resources conflicts with an emphasis on the role of governments. The session will describe the results of the CIRDI-UNDP conflict study, present case studies from Africa and South America and include a panel discussion with representatives from a range of stakeholder groups involved in preventing and managing mining conflicts.
