  • Workshop
  • Ending 1:30PM SAST
The energy transition requires more minerals than fossil-fuel-based systems to scale up low-carbon infrastructure to fight against climate change. The boom in demand for these minerals will increase the likelihood of corruption and impact marginalized groups; women and youth disproportionately. Many reserves of transition minerals are also located in countries that struggle with governance. This means that governments, oversight actors and climate community need to take decisive action now to ensure sustainable development of their economies and in particular, address the growing risks of corruption in transition mineral supply chains and mitigate impacts on lives and livelihoods. Suitable for members of civil society, youth, womens, community and faith-based groups working on mining, this workshop aims to:
  • Improve participants’ knowledge of the connection between just energy transition, corruption, gender and the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative standard.
  • Provide participants with information and skills to improve the quality of their interventions and positively influence the transparent management of transition minerals in their communities.
Speakers include Nafi Chinery, Tengi George-Ikoli and Silas Olan'g of NRGI; and Gilbert Makore and Fatma Nyambura of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative.
