ICMM workshop on human rights

Following the conference week in Sydney, two IM4DC personnel attended a workshop on human rights and mining in Perth on 27 May. 

Hosted by the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) and the Institute for Human Rights and Business (IHRB), the workshop theme was From Good Practice Guidance to Good Practice on the Ground

The workshop examined key questions regarding the challenges in implementing human rights due diligence, the challenges in implementing effective grievance mechanisms, and what should be priority areas of focus around respecting human rights and access to remedy. 

ICMM and IHRB will utilise the outputs of this and similar workshops to review policies and guidance on human rights impacts of mining operations.
