The second SUMEX Clustering Workshop with the theme Sustainability outside the box: lessons from natural resource projects, architecture and E-learning, took place online 29 September 2021 and sought to challenge the current thinking around sustainability of the extractives industry by looking at good practices through different non-extractive lenses. In addition, a graphical illustrator recorded the workshop.
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.
SUMEX is pleased to launch the first edition of its yearly Policy brief where we present a preliminary framework of priorities for sustainable development in relation to the extractive industry.
