Release of Joint Report Planning for the Economic Future of Colorado’s Coal Communities
SDSG, together with the Mountain Pact, is pleased to release the report Planning for the Economic Future of Colorado’s Coal Communities. This report focuses on two key questions: First, to the extent that we do use coal, what federal, state, and local policies can ensure that the benefits of coal production are maximized? Second, what are the options for a sustainable, positive future for coal-dependent communities? Access the report at: http://www.sdsg.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/CoalPlanningReport3.pdf.
Compilation of Resources for Mine-Affected Communities
Sustainable Development Strategies Group is pleased to be working with Global Rights (D.C.) and Futuro Sostenible (Lima) to develop a toolkit to aid communities in knowledge development, decision-making and negotiation processes related to extractive industries projects. As a first step, and as a follow-on from discussions at Simon Fraser University’s Global Exploration, Mining and Minerals (GEMM) Dialogue, we have developed a library of existing resources for mine-affected communities and their advocates, available at: http://communitiesfirst.net/toolkits/. We are searching for additional resources to add to this library. Please send your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
