Towards a transparent and accountable mineral resources governance framework

PWYP Zimbabwe have published a compendium of research papers on key mining related matters in Zimbabwe.

Rampant corruption in the mineral sector threatens to erode the potential the sector has been contributing to economic recovery and drive socio-economic development in Zimbabwe. This compendium presents abridged versions of research papers from Publish What You Pay Zimbabwe coalition members in their effort towards contributing to a more transparent and accountable mining sector.

Transparency International Zimbabwe (TI-Z) argues that rampant corruption in the mining sector threatens to erode the potential the sector has to contribute to economic recovery. The Zimbabwe Coalition on Debt and Development (ZIMCODD) presents an analysis of the Auditor General’s reports from 2013 to 2015 to assess progress in the implementation of the Auditor General’s recommendations. The Institute for Sustainability Africa (Insaf) presents findings on the extent of compliance with stock exchange requirements on sustainability reporting by public listed mining companies operating in Zimbabwe. The Zimbabwe Environmental Law Association (ZELA) explores the opportunities and pitfalls of the 2016 Mines and Minerals Amendment Act. The compendium closes with an argument over the search for alternatives to mining by the Centre for Natural Resources Governance (CNRG).
