Mining conflict pathways and the roles of government, industry, communities and NGOs

The incidents of mining conflicts have been on the rise for the past two decades and is one of the biggest challenges facing the global mining industry today. The drivers of these conflicts are complex and involve the interplay of multiple actors including companies, various levels of government, communities, and non-government organizations (NGO). Recent field, literature and conflict incident research by CIRDI and the UNDP has involved a systematic analysis and documentation of the individual and collective behaviors of the actors involved, their interrelationships and how they actually contribute to conflict situations over time. In particular, CIRDI and the UNDP have examined the role of host governments and public institutions in shaping the early narrative of conflict in terms of government actions and non-actions. This workshop will examine the interplay between the main actors in resource conflicts through presentations and a panel discussion that will consider strategies to prevent and manage mining conflicts.
