PNG Mining Licences Risks
Report Title: Transparency International Papua New Guinea Corruption Risks in Mining Awards Country Report
Transparency International Papua New Guinea (TIPNG) is one of 20 national chapters participating in Transparency International’s global Mining for Sustainable Development (M4SD) Programme. The Programme is coordinated by TI Australia. The M4SD Programme complements existing efforts to improve transparency and accountability in extractive industries by focussing specifically on the start of the mining decision chain: the point at which governments grant and award mining permits and licences, negotiate contracts and make agreements.
The Programme has been about understanding the problem by identifying and assessing the corruption risks in the process and practice of awarding mining licences, permits and contracts. This report presents the main findings from the corruption risk assessment in Papua New Guinea.
