The University of Queensland’s Sustainable Minerals Institute is hosting a consultation meeting to facilitate feedback from the Australia/Asia/Pacific region on the draft of Mapping mining to the Sustainable Development Goals: A preliminary atlas.

The Atlas has been prepared by SDSN, the Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment, UNDP, and the World Economic Forum.

The Atlas maps the linkages between mining and the SDGs with the aim to encourage mining companies of all sizes to incorporate relevant SDGs into their business and operations. The partners also hope the Atlas will spur action to leverage the transformative power of collaboration and partnership between the mining industry, local and national governments, civil society and communities.

Please join in person or online/phone for a dynamic discussion of the draft.

If you cannot attend this consultation, you can submit your comments online before April 8.
