Stakeholder Perceptions and Suggestions: Responsible Mineral Development Initiative 2010
Written by Responsible Mineral Development Initiative 2010
The World Economic Forum’s Responsible Mineral Development Initiative (RMDI) was launched to explore the views, priorities and concerns of key stakeholders on mineral development, and to seek answers on what works, what does not, where discontent and frustration most commonly arise, and where improvements should occur.
This report presents the preliminary findings of research covering 13 countries in three regions. It is offered as a basis for further discussion to determine additional research, policy and action oriented deliverables of this initiative for 2011 and beyond.
Section 1 introduces the project and explains the research methodology. Section 2 summarizes the findings of the research and ideas raised by stakeholders. Sections 3 to 5 go into more detail on perspectives and suggestions of stakeholders in the 13 countries: in Africa (section 3), Ghana, Liberia, South Africa and Tanzania; in East Asia (section 4), Australia, Indonesia, Laos, Mongolia and Papua New Guinea; and in Latin America (section 5), Brazil,
Chile, Colombia and Peru.
