Join us for upcoming events on mining procurement, IIED's new strategy, and London Climate Action Week.

Mining local procurement – a necessary lever to overcome the resource curse

Mining has massive potential benefit for economic and social development in host countries. But civil society and official development assistance (ODA) providers have focused little work and resources on the issue of backward linkages from mine sites to upstream suppliers.

Jeff Geipel, founder and managing director of Mining Shared Value, will discuss the creation of a global standard on local procurement reporting for mining companies in a seminar at IIED.

Date: Monday, 10 June 2019 
Time: 3.30-5.30pm (BST)
Place: IIED, 80-86 Gray's Inn Road, London WC1X 8NH
