NGO urges Zimbabwe to open mines sector to scrutiny

Centre for Natural Resource Governance calls on the government of Zimbabwe to:

·       De-militarize, de-politicize and de-securitize Zimbabwe’s natural resources sector and its governance.

·       Open democratic space in resource-rich communities so that they practice free, prior and informed consent.

·       Promote inclusion of key stakeholders such as mineral host communities, Civic Sector Organisations and the Parliament of Zimbabwe in the decision-making process of natural resource governance.

·       Ensure public meetings in mineral-rich communities are permitted and  community grievances acknowledged and acted on.

·       Open space for media to freely operate in resource-rich areas such as Marange, Hwange and Mutoko.
