Mining for Development Roundtable and Africa-Australia Research Forum, 27 and 28 August

IM4DC will host a by-invitation Mining for Development Roundtable at The University of Western Australia in Perth on Monday 27 August.

The roundtable will look at the key mining for development issues as well as examine regional development and infrastructure issues in some detail.

Coinciding with the Africa Down Under Conference later in the week, the roundtable will have an African focus, although the issues examined will be applicable to other regions.

The outcomes of the roundtable will be communicated to the Africa-Australia Research Forum being held on Tuesday 28 August.

The Africa-Australia Research Forum will bring together African Nationals, Australian and African mining companies, Australian and African academics, NGO’s, and government representatives to explore selected aspects of the African Mining Vision and how Australian entities can engage with their African counterparts to undertake research that will support the execution of the action plan to maximise value and minimise harm.
