The EU-Latin America Partnership on Raw Materials project hosted a recurring webinar series. The webinars addressed a diverse range of topics that are key to fostering responsible and sustainable non-energy extractive industries in both regions.
The webinars brought together experts from the EU and Latin America to share their analyses and best practices on the topics. Thus, participants gained 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 were translated simultaneously and offer English, Spanish and Portuguese audio channels. All webinars were free of charge.
