BAAG: Letter to Ministry of Mines, June 2013

Subject: Corruption BAAG reports Environment

BAAG and 35 international and Afghan civil society organisations petitioned the Afghan Ministry of Mines to deliver on their commitments for effective oversight of the burgeoning mining sector.  The call came ahead of critical meetings in Kabul on 3rd July 2013. 

At the 2012 Tokyo conference, Afghanistan and its international partners agreed to develop a framework “that governs Afghanistan’s natural wealth through an accountable, efficient and transparent mechanism which builds upon and surpasses international best practices.”  The civil society organisations responded to concerns that this could be interpreted as nothing more than publishing mining revenues.

A further letter was sent to the international partners party to the Tokyo Mutual Accountability Framework.
