    Environmental Governance of the Mining Sector

    This webinar series explores the tools and strategies to understand and act upon the effects of mining on human rights, including the right to a safe and healthy environment of different groups in society, across time, and across different localities. We introduce the ecosystem services framework and explain how it can be used to enhance public decision-making and strengthen Environmental Impact Assessment procedures. The webinars also focus on the environmental licensing functions and tasks of government institutions at the national and regional level. Using Colombia as a case study, we analyze the role of public administration in promoting good governance and preventing environmental harm by the mining sector.
