Mission Critical: Mining Governance for a Just Energy Transition (COP27 Side Event)
12 November 2022
Meeting the Paris Agreement’s mitigation goals requires the deployment of low-carbon technologies that rely heavily on minerals. This makes the mining sector critical in the fight against climate change. This official Blue Zone side event explored why resource governance and collaboration matter for a just transition. Speakers included senior government representatives and civil society actors from major minerals-producing countries, including the DRC, as well as senior mining industry representatives.
