Mongolian Study Tour (May 2014)

This learning program was designed to facilitate a greater understanding of the issues related to natural resources in Mongolia and explore potential programming areas where CIRDI’s expertise may be deployed to support good governance and integrated resource management. Activities were planned to engage participants in a diverse range of themes and approaches to mining-related issues including foreign investment laws, procurement policies, accountability, mine closure and sustainable development.

The nine participants represented government agencies, media, academia and NGOs – all involved in advocating, influencing and/or drafting mining sector policies in Mongolia.

Programing included an overview of Canada’s mining regulatory environment; discussions on the role of stakeholders in drafting mining-related legislation; a workshop on the social license to operate; participation in the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum’s annual conference; and a site visit to the New Afton mine in Kamloops, British Columbia.
