Environmental Principles for Mining in Namibia
Proponent: Namibian Chamber of Environment (NCE)
Sector: Mining & Minerals
This best practice guide is a result of a joint publication from the Chamber of Mines (CoM), Namibian Chamber of Environment (NCE), the Namibian Government and members of the Namibian mining industry. Engaging with the government and relevant Ministries was a crucial part in the formulation of the best practice guide.
This allowed relevant information to be captured and incorporated into the guides as well as identifying key issues to be addressed in the mining industry. The Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) and the Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET) provided indispensable input in developing this best practice guide.
ECC’s Role in the project
Environmental Compliance Consultancy (ECC) has been engaged by the Chamber of Mines (CoM) and the Namibian Chamber of Environment (NCE) to draft the Environmental Principles for Mining in Namibia.
