IM4DC operates with three core themes of Governance and Regulation, Community and Environmental Sustainability, and Operational Effectiveness to work with developing nations to:

  • Support progress towards the United Nations  and broader whole-of-government objectives globally
  • Establish and maintain sustainable mining sectors in developing nations
  • Improve governance and accountability through ethical and transparent regulation and operation
  • Strengthen economic and social outcomes globally through institutional strengthening, education and capacity building
