The 19th Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals, Metals and Sustainable Development (IGF) will bring together key officials from more than 80 member governments, academia, industry, civil society, and international organizations to promote knowledge sharing and best practices from around the globe. The meeting will focus on the theme, ‘Sharing Benefits in the Energy Transition’.
The IGF serves as a global venue for dialogue among member governments, as well as mining companies and industry associations. The IGF is a voluntary initiative committed to leveraging mining for sustainable development to ensure negative impacts are limited and financial benefits are shared. Members have access to a number of resources, including IGF’s Guidance for Governments, Mining Policy Framework, and capacity-building and training opportunities. The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) has hosted the IGF Secretariat since 2015.
The UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) will host the 19th AGM.
