View the Full Schedule for 2015
Join us for our next Security, Rights & Development Roundtable meeting which will take place on Thursday, May 7. Information may be power, but it should also be seen as empowering. Many conflicts occur due to a lack of information and understanding. This Roundtable will examine how informing and educating communities, landowners, and other stakeholders can improve understanding. The panel will look at the importance of educating communities and landowners, as well as focusing on how information can even empower certain other stakeholders such as artisanal miners, not only reducing conflict but fostering economic development.
