Extractive industries projects have a medium to long-term presence in society. Questions therefore arise of how to achieve socially responsible closure of these projects. Three closure scenarios lend themselves to tri-sector partnerships: forward planning, retrofitting, and managing grievances.
This paper touches on opportunities and risks related to NGO/Mining Industry collaboration. But first, it will address some of the underlying community development issues a mining operation in the Third World may face. It will attempt to situate a mining operation in the larger economic and social life of the rural community in which it might be located.
This handbook is primarily targeted toward officials who are faced with the challenge of managing for results. Developing countries in particular have multiple obstacles to overcome in building M&E systems. However, results-based M&E systems are a continuous work in progress for both developed and developing countries. When implemented properly these systems provide a continuous flow of information feedback into the system, which can help guide policymakers toward achieving the desired results. Seasoned program managers in developed countries and international organizations—where results-based M&E systems are now in place—are using this approach to gain insight into the performance of their respective organizations.

BMA is committed to ensuring that the communities continue to share our success. To this end, we are working with governments, community groups and other organisations to ensure resources are directed toward building long term benefits.

This paper outlines potential water-related risks facing the mining industry and highlights important gaps in water-related disclosure. The World Resources Institute (WRI) working papers contain preliminary research, analysis, findings, and recommendations. They are circulated to stimulate timely discussion and critical feedback and to influence ongoing debate on emerging issues. Most working papers are eventually published in another form and their content may be revised.
