Implementing Partners The Mining for Sustainable Development Programme is:
- Led in Papua New Guinea by Transparency International PNG.
- Implemented globally by local TI chapters in coalition with stakeholders in twenty different countries.
- Supported by TI Australia, acting as a global Centre of Expertise and the TI International Secretariat.
Phase I of the Programme is funded by BHP Billiton Foundation and the Department of Foreign.
The problem needs to be tackled at its roots: weak transparency and accountability in decision-making about mining approvals.
Where we fit in
We are complementing existing efforts to improve transparency in extractive industries…
…by focussing on the start of the decision chain: the point at which governments grant mining permits and licences, negotiate contracts and make agreements.
How the Programme works
Phase I (2016-2017): assessing corruption risks and building stakeholder coalitions in 20 countries.
Phase II (2018-2020): implementing national, regional and global strategies to address risks identified in Phase I.
