This guide is primarily aimed at providing guidance to companies on good practice where mining-related activities occur on or near traditional indigenous land and territory.
Part 1 of the guide is divided into four chapters, each of which deals with an important thematic area that mining companies should be familiar with in order to ensure that their operations not only avoid or minimise their negative impact on indigenous groups, but also make a positive contribution to community and social development in indigenous communities.
Part 2 of the guide contains a series of tools. These tools have been developed to give practical effect to the good practice principles and themes discussed in Part 1.
Part 3 provides a number of case studies from ICMM members which relate to different sections of the document.
Part 4 contains further information including a list of useful resources.
