Water-Energy-Food Security: What are the potential contributions of the mining industry?
On the event of the 2014 Annual General Meeting of the Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals, Metals and Sustainable Development (IGF), the IISD proposed that new approaches are needed to better account for the contributions of the mining industry to water, energy and food security for affected communities.
