SESSION IN ENGLISH 

The formalisation of artisanal mining in the DRC will pave the way to creating a transparent and ethically responsible mining supply chain. Furthermore, it will help to curb illegal mining activities, lessen the impact on the environment and help the country achieve its sustainability goals. Never before has this been more important as international businesses such as BMW and Volkswagen are looking to secure commodity supply – responsibly – for their own electric vehicle needs.

In this session, experts will explore strategy and best practices to ensure transparency in the DRC’s mining sector. 

Moderator:  Laura Cornish, Editor-in-Chief, Mining Review Africa, South Africa
