In this June 2 Mining Coffee chat organized by Americas Market Intelligence, Remi Piet —director of the Natural Resources Practice for AMI — was joined by Nicholas Maennling from the German Development Agency (GIZ). Nicholas and GIZ have been very active in conceptualizing the role of the mining sector in economic development in Latin America and Africa in particular.
The focus of this discussion was sustainable economic development through the mining sector. In particular, Remi and Nicholas covered extractive industries and development governance, as well as best practices to increase local value creation.
Among the issues discussed in this Mining Coffee Chat were sustainable management of mining operations, transfers of innovation, knowledge management and best practices in stakeholder relations.
While the speakers’ initial focus was on Andean countries (where Nicholas has most recently worked), they also included examples from other jurisdictions in Africa, Asia and Latin America to best answer the specific interest of the attendees.
