GIZ Regional Cooperation Program for the Sustainable Management of Mining Resources
The Regional Cooperation Program for the Sustainable Management of Mining Resources in the Andean Countries (MinSus) seeks to support the Andean countries in the design of sustainable supply chains in the mining sector in line with SDG´s 2030 Agenda. It seeks to promote innovation and ensure greater efficiency in the development of mining activity; promote respect for human rights in the sector, and promote responsible, sustainable and transparent mining supply chains.
Generate a reflective dialogue by drafting recommendations on the role of certifications to change institutional dynamics in relation to the role played by the state, civil society, and international certifiers with mining projects and to discuss with the members of the working group the promotion of greater efficiency in the development of mining activity, and responsible, sustainable and transparent mining supply chains.
The role of GI will be based on the identification of supply and demand for information resulting from certifications at the mine level, the analysis of the institutional context, and the objectives of the potential users of the information. This implies:
- Review of the technical and thematic inputs produced by the table to identify the main information needs and objectives of the potential users of the information.
- Analysis the information produced in the certification processes prioritized, including the formats, the measurement standards, the type of information generated.
- Identification of meeting points between the information to generate different types of recommendations.
- Review of processes and limitations for the publication of relevant information for users.
- Assessment of the possibility of generating new data fields that are very useful for users and are not fully covered at present.
These recommendations will identify relevant issues and enrich the discussion of existing incentives and/or disincentives, institutional limitations, and the identification of opportunities to improve the availability and use of information for relevant stakeholders.
