We hope you enjoyed our recent sessions of the webinar series on Environmental Governance of the Mining Sector dedicated to Using Social and Environmental Safeguards and Grievance Mechanisms as Tools to Prevent Harm in the Extractive Sector.
The webinar discussed global social and environmental standards, and the grievance mechanisms that underlie them, as well as the role of these standards and mechanisms in preventing and addressing conflict in the mining, oil and gas sectors. A case study from a mine in Mongolia managed by the Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) - a grievance and accountability mechanism of the International Finance Corporation- was also featured. The case was the basis for discussion and experience sharing.
