2019 IGF Annual Report

Leveraging mining for sustainable development has never been more vital.

Mining can be a major force when combating poverty, fostering gender equality, and improving environmental management. Governments join the IGF because we deal with these important issues and many others that matter to them, like climate change and artisanal and small-scale mining. 

We help governments assess their policy frameworks to identify gaps and build on opportunities. Member governments can then design a mining regime that attracts investment and ensures benefits are shared. We provide in-country and digital workshops designed to build capacity and foster peer-learning, ensuring members learn how to develop and implement programs that meet their evolving needs.  

Our 2019 Annual Report highlights our commitment to our 76 member countries to ensure mining's benefits are shared and leveraged for sustainable development.
