Panel: Making decisions

Moderator: Rob Stevens, Canadian International Resources & Development Institute Panelists: Linda Wrong, Lundin Mining Corporation; Arjun Bhalla, International Finance Corporation; Sharon Peake, Global Affairs Canada; Jocelyn Fraser, University of British Columbia
The panel will focus on decision-making tips and will include four speakers representing different perspectives – academia, government, multilateral organization and industry. The first two parts of the workshop will discuss in depth the key elements (physical and social) of integrated resource management. The panel will bring it all together, drawing on each speaker’s experience and perspective. During that five-minute slot allocated to each speaker, the speakers will present their tips or tools towards decision-making for IRM. The presentations will be followed by a Q & A with the audience.
