Declaration of the Zambia Alternative Mining Indaba (25/06/16)

The Zambia Alternative Mining Indaba took place last week in Lusaka where civil society organisations came together to find ways for natural resources to improve the lives of communities in Zambia. The event aims to provide a platform for voices of marginalized and mining affected communities in order for decision and policy making on mining to take full account of their realities, concerns and aspirations. It is also an occasion to provide a safe space for constructive, multi-stakeholder dialogue on mining and natural resources governance. Participants use the event to explore and propose solutions for improved governance of the sector.

The event concluded with a declaration issued by the participants, setting some recommendations of the way forward.
