The Problem

The problem


Mining offers opportunity

The problem needs to be tackled at its roots: weak transparency and accountability in decision-making about mining approvals.

The Solution

Good Government

Where we fit in

We are complementing existing efforts to improve transparency in extractive industries…

Sustainable Mining

…by focussing on the start of the decision chain: the point at which governments grant mining permits and licences, negotiate contracts and make agreements.

Our Vision

Good Government

How the Programme works

Phase I (2016-2017): assessing corruption risks and building stakeholder coalitions in 20 countries.
