Contribute to our capacity building survey!

The SUMEX project is inviting stakeholders involved in the extractives industry (policymakers, permitting authorities, NGOs, etc.) to understand where specific knowledge gaps exist in the field of sustainable extraction. The replies to this survey will allow the SUMEX team to begin to assess what kinds of capacity building – i.e. learning and exchange actions and materials – are needed to fill these gaps. SUMEX will collect these responses for discussion in workshops and to develop a toolkit. These results will be brought into the SUMEX recommendations for future work towards capacity building.
