WA Mineral Governance

Western Australia

CET has been requested by the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) to compile a report on governance of mineral resources in Western Australia.  

This research will be a component of UNECA’s process of “Mainstreaming the Governance of the Extractive Sectors in the African Peer Review Mechanism Process” which aims to help institutionalize sound strategies and best practice guidelines into the day-to-day life of every mineral rich African country’s government. Accordingly the report will cast the WA State Government’s mineral governance policy and practice framework against the broader context of the  Federal Government’s regulatory and fiscal regime as it concerns the extractive industry  and incorporate any lessons that can be gained from WA’s experiences, both positive and negative, which may be applicable to mineral-rich African jurisdictions.
