The Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals, Metals and Sustainable Development (IGF) is a partnership of 58 countries dedicated to strengthening governance in the mining sector to advance sustainable development. The IGF is the only global forum for governments focused on addressing mineral and mining governance challenges and opportunities, and as such is an important venue for international dialogue, knowledge and best practice dissemination, as well as mining sector coordination on advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The IGF brings together mining officials from developing countries, civil society organizations and mining companies, value-chain partners and donors to advance innovation, international standards and best practices in mining sector management, responsible resource governance and inclusive green growth.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased policy coherence, coordination, cooperation and knowledge-sharing between resource-rich developing countries and key stakeholders in the mining sector; (2) improved resource governance and decision making by government ministries working in the sector; and (3) greater best practice implementation (including gender-sentivity) by the institutions responsible for mineral sector policy, legislation and regulation.
