The EU-Latin America Partnership on Raw Materials project is hosting a yearly webinar series for MDNP members*. Each year, the webinars will address a diverse range of topics that are key to fostering responsible and sustainable non-energy extractive industries in both regions.
The webinars will bring together experts from the EU and Latin America to share their analyses and best practices on the topics. Thus, MDNP members will gain insights into the work being done in both regions on driving responsible mining and building sustainable and resilient mineral raw materials value chains.
All webinars will be translated simultaneously and offer English, Spanish and Portuguese audio channels. All webinars are free of charge.
*The eligibility criteria to become a member of the MDNP is to be legally based in an EU Member State or in one of the following Latin American countries Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Uruguay and to be active in the fields relevant for the non-energy extractive industry sector. Governmental entities from other Latin American countries are also eligible as members of the MDNP.
Innovative solutions for sustainable mineral exploration
In the EU and Latin America, mineral exploration plays a key role in ensuring a secure supply of raw materials. However, exploration must respond to local conditions and international trends. Innovative solutions and practices are needed to improve access to raw materials at commercially viable concentrations for mining purposes, and to demonstrate that raw materials can be extracted in line with social and environmental standards.
This business-oriented webinar seeks to showcase examples of innovation from the field of mineral exploration, as this is a prerequisite for the integration of sustainable raw material value chains between the EU and Latin America.
Registration for the webinar “Innovative solutions for sustainable mineral exploration” is closed.
