Please Save the Date for the follow up of the Raw Materials Diplomacy Dialogue between the EU and the advanced mining countries (US, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Chile, Peru, Mexico, Brazil) which will take place in Brussels, on 15 and 16 October 2015.
The follow up of this dialogue will be organized in parallel thematic sessions:
- Best practices on good governance: Share practices on good governance covering policy instruments for extractive industries, public acceptance, innovation policies, support for exploration, permits, or planning land use after mining, social license to operate, permiting and licencing in natural protected areas, amongst others.
- Mining rehabilitation: Contribute to increase resource efficiency, mitigate environmental impacts of the extractive industries and improve public acceptance of this sector through the share of good practices covering technology and legal frameworks linked with mining waste management and rehabilitation of old mining sites and good practices and policies to encourage the use of mining wastes as valuable resources.
- Knowledge Base and data availability and management including material flows: One of the most relevant and critical issues to ensure secure supply of the raw materials and support policy decisions and planning at short, medium and long terms is the availability of reliable, quality and updated data on mineral deposits, resources and reserves of primary and secondary raw materials, production, imports, exports, flows and commodities forecast demands based on existing and developing technologies, not only for Critical Raw Materials but to all raw materials with relevance to supply downstream industries. This session will promote the share of knowledge and data management models.
The online registration with additional details will be announced soon.
