Mining for Sustainable Development National Reports

During Phase I (2016 – 2017) of the Mining for Sustainable Development Programme, Transparency International national chapters from across the globe spent 6 – 9 months conducting assessments to understand the nature and source of corruption risks in mining approval processes in their countries.

This research identifies the systemic, regulatory, and institutional vulnerabilities to corruption in awarding mining and mining-related licences, permits, and contracts, and assesses the specific corruption risks created by these vulnerabilities. These reports present key findings.

The research, language, views, conclusions and strategies outlined in these documents have been created by the Transparency International national chapter in the respective countries and are not [necessarily] endorsed by Transparency International, Transparency International Australia, BHP Billiton Foundation or the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
