Published report: ‘SEA for the Mining Sector’

25 April 2024

The NCEA and the Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals, Metals and Sustainable Development (IGF) have joined forces to work on a report on SEA for the mining sector. This report provides an analysis on how environmental assessments (SEA) can improve mining sector governance and points out the benefits through several country case studies.

Today, following up on this report, The NCEA and IGF will lead a panel discussion on the relevance of SEA in the mining sector at the IAIA24 conference in Dublin. The goal of the session is to generate ideas on enhancing the use of SEA in mining for a just transformation, taking on board impacts, obstacles and ways to overcome them.

The report is available on the IGF website.
