Natural Resource Sector Reform

The APPG convened a meeting on December 6, 2006 to discuss the agenda for reform of the natural resource sector in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). One of the principle aims of the meeting was to contribute to the work of the United Nations Group of Experts by discussing suggestions for action raised in the course of their work so far and by making further proposals within a round-table forum. A wide cross-section of business, government, and NGO representatives took part, including participants from the DRC, UK and Belgian governments, mining, assaying, and security companies, governance consultants and experts, NGOs from the environmental, development, and human rights sectors, and UK parliamentarians.


 A summary meeting report, including 19 recommendations for action, is available here. Full minutes of the entire session are also available here.
