The Livestream starts on Thursday, 1 June 2023, at 9:30 a.m. (CEST)
Development cooperation plays a pivotal role in supporting partner countries in aligning their local development goals with the requirements for responsible mineral supply chains. The BMZ High-Level Forum will bring together policymakers and representatives from civil society, academia and the private sector from around the world to discuss the challenges and opportunities in shaping responsible and resilient mineral supply chains. The forum will be a hybrid event with 100-150 participants on-site.
Side Event “Implementing Responsible Mining for the Just Transition”
In the run-up to the High-Level Forum, the Sector Programme “Extractives and Development”, which is jointly implemented by the BGR and GIZ, is organising the working-level side event “Implementing Responsible Mining for the Just Transition” on Wednesday, 31 May 2023 at GIZ’s Berlin Representation and online.
The event will bring together policymakers, practitioners, and academics to share and discuss experiences on project activities, research, and innovative instruments that contribute to responsible mineral supply chains. The event will complement the BMZ High-Level Forum by providing space for a more in-depth discussion.
Different sessions of the side event will explore fields of action towards responsible mining for the just transition. From a practical perspective, the event will discuss topics like ESG-performance and assessment along supply chains, collaborative action and partnerships, benefit sharing in the mining sector as well as digitalisation and gender equality as cross-cutting themes in the mining sector.
