Calls for inclusion & engagement as So. Africa hosts Investing in Mining Indaba
As Africa’s top mining CEOs prepare to address thousands of industry professionals at the Investing in African Mining Indaba, NGOs have called for human rights protections to safeguard communities, workers, and investments.
The Indaba runs 9-12 February 2015. The Alternative Mining Indaba runs alongside, providing an international platform for civil society organizations.
Business & Human Rights Resource Centre has released a briefing note on southern African mining to conincide with the Indabas. The briefing note argues that better respect for human rights in mining is key to protecting investments, and easing tension with communities and workers in southern Africa.
