Extractive Industry Governance and the Sustainable Development Goals


SAIIA's annual Change Makers Forum on 9 February is an annual high-level dialogue to promote extractive sector transformation in Africa. Co-hosted with the University of Cape Town’s Minerals to Metals Programme, it is a neutral platform for bridging the divisions that continue to polarise mining discussions across Africa.

This year will focus on how the mining industry can help achieve the global Sustainable Development Goals, and how the Africa Mining Vision might provide a framework for this. Senior participants will work together to identify practical, concrete steps that can be taken to strengthen mining’s contribution to meeting the Goals. Similarly to our first event, roundtable discussions will follow the initial interventions to ensure as much audience participation as possible.
