14 Mar: Revisiting corruption risks in the mining awards process: a MACRA Tool approach

Globally, the extractive sector can be a source of livelihood for local people, supports regional development, and helps to boost national economies. However, the sector does have serious institutional and behavioural weaknesses. It is the poorest people, living in the mining areas, who are particularly vulnerable when the mining sector and their governments fail them.

Who Are We?

We tackle corruption by shining a light on the illegal practices and unfair laws that weaken our democracy.

Transparency International Australia is the Australian national chapter of an international coalition against corruption, operating in over 100 countries.

Through Transparency International we are part of a global movement leading the fight against corruption. Each chapter is independent and unique, and together we aspire to a unified vision: a world free of corruption.
