The inaugural Mining for Development Conference will take place in Perth at The University of Western Australia.
This global conference will bring together leaders from civil society, government and industry to review the performance of mining and oil and gas production in generating economic benefits and facilitating social progress in developing countries, and to chart a course for future policy and practice.
The objective is to define leading approaches to mining for development that bring about sustainable benefits for nations and their peoples, without adverse affects.
Conference participants will share knowledge and experience of leading practice for sustainable mining to achieve broad-based economic growth and poverty reduction in developing countries, and build concensus on the key principles for, and approaches to, mining for development.
