The Africa Mining Vision offers a framework for resource exploitation that achieves sustainable development in countries with diverse mineral prospectivity, development histories, and institutional and human capital.

The vision’s origins and principles for broad-based socioeconomic development across the continent are being implemented by the African Minerals Development Centre.

The Africa Mining Vision is significant both as a framework for guiding countries that are seeking to maximize the contribution of mining to sustainable development and in educating practitioners and scholars who are working on inclusive social and economic development opportunities from mining in Africa.
