New: 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.
