The DRC Alternative Mining Indaba is in its second edition this year. It will be held (21-24 May) in the rich mining province of Lualaba. Over 250 participants are expected to attend from national and provincial governments, mining companies, civil society, labour, communities and artisanal miners.
If you are interested in what is happening in the DRC mining sector from human rights and development perspectives then you must come and listen to the real people talking about the impact of mining activities on their lives, efforts that government and other actors are deploying to eradicate child labour and vulnerable women from ASM.
The new Mining Code and the dispute from the seven major mining companies will be on the table for the discussion. Civil society will propose a way forward. Civil society that operates in the extractive Industries is respected by companies and government in the DRC. If you want to influence the outcome, come and join the discussion.
What about governance of revenues? Participants will hear from government officials and civil society activists about corruption in the sector and how to improve on transparency and accountability.
