ACCA AND Global Rights Nigeria are pleased to invite you to the 3rd edition of the West Africa Mining Indaba slated to take place from 15-17 November 2023. This year’s theme is “Insecurity and Minerals Governance in West Africa: Building Mechanisms for the Protection of Mining Host Communities.”
The West African Mining Host Communities INDABA 2023 is a regional conference that aims to build upon the success of the previous year's conference and continue the dialogue on enhancing natural resource management for the sustainability of extractive host communities. It will also offer the opportunity to review countries’ efforts in implementing the National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights and draw lessons from the countries in the African region that have developed the NAP-BHR.
The conference will bring together key stakeholders, including mining host communities, civil society organizations, government representatives, industry experts, and international organizations, to discuss challenges, share experiences, and propose solutions for the sustainable development of mining host communities.
