Sustainable Investment in Agriculture and Mining Workshop
Parliamentarians will gather in Arusha, Tanzania, April 6-7 to discuss the East African Community (EAC) Mining Bill 2017 and Model Contract for Farmland Investment.
The law and model were developed with assistance from the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) and the Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals, Metals and Sustainable Development (IGF) after extensive consultations and research.
The goal of these models is to reflect regional priorities and international best practices to assist EAC’s member nations in attracting appropriate investments.
The first day of the “Sustainable Investment in Agriculture and Mining Workshop” will: highlight IISD’s and IGF’s role and experience in other countries; provide the rationale, scope and process of the model contract for farmland investments and mining bill; and give an overview on mining laws and practices in the EAC.
The second day of the workshop will take a deeper dive into the mining bill and provide guidance on next steps.
