The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has been working with the World Economic Forum (WEF), the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) and Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment (CCSI) as well as with partners in the mining industry, governments, and civil society to create a shared understanding of how the mining industry can most effectively contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). During the recent UN General Assembly, these institutions in collaboration with the Government of the Republic of Zambia organized a side event to, among other things, identify concrete steps to forward the agenda on extractive industries and sustainable development.
