SUMEX announces the release of the second edition of its yearly Policy brief. In this document, the project provides an overview of how it assesses practices and their relevance for a transition towards sustainability in the extractives sector through the analysis of:

  • Tensions and trade-offs
  • Leverage Points
  • The Institutional Resource Regime (IRR) approach, and
  • Qualitative policy analysis

All data gathered on industry and policy good practices within the extractive sector is available in the SUMEX knowledge repository.

We invite you to read more on our research on sustainable management in the extractive sector in our Policy brief:
