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.

Very informative and captivating session.

One of the highlights of this course — at least for me — was Part 2: Module 2, especially the Conflict Pathway Analytical Framework. On the one hand, I felt like conflict was a little insensitively sanitized and downplayed in the session; however, on the other hand, I can see how thinking about conflict as an abstract thing through a critical/conflict determinant hierarchy lens can be a very helpful way to break a problem down.

I can’t remember enrolling for this course, but it says that I am enrolled, can you help in removing myself as I can not reach the course coordinator until he/she is in my contacts?
