Approach paper towards preparation of an African green minerals strategy

As the world grapples with the challenges of climate change, the transition away from fossil fuels is having a major impact on the minerals industry. Metals used in electrification, renewable energy generation, electric mobility and new forms of energy storage have become critical to these expanding low and no carbon industries. Africa is endowed with many of the most important minerals, and the increased demand makes it imperative that stewardship of these resources be guided to maximise the benefits of their exploitation to the continent and her people.
