In Home, Blog, Charity
The Zimbabwe Environmental Law Association (ZELA) in partnership with Zimbabwe Council of Churches (ZCC) and Zimbabwe Coalition on Debt and Development (ZIMCODD) convened the fourth Zimbabwe Alternative Mining Indaba (ZAMI) at Holiday Inn Bulawayo from the 28th to the 29th of September 2016. The ZAMI 2016 theme was Mining Sector Reforms: A Call for Economic, Social and Environmental Justice. The theme was inspired by the quest to influence ongoing legislative and policy reforms in the mining sector and ensure there is a conducive operating environment for the mining sector to consolidate its status as the top performing sector of the economy in terms of foreign currency generation.
The ZAMI has over the last three years asserted its authority as a progressive multi stakeholder platform that facilitates discussion of Zimbabwe’s mining sector and proffers policy, legislative and programming interventions to promote sustainable mineral resources exploitation. Represented at the fourth ZAMI were legislators (Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Mines and Energy), Councillors, District Administrators, representatives of villagers and citizens from mining communities across Zimbabwe, Government officials (Clerk of Parliament, Deputy Governor of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe and Principal Director in the Ministry of Mines and Mining Development), traditional leaders, mining companies, small scale artisanal miners and members of Civil Society from Zimbabwe and the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) region.
