Please join the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines and the Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals, Metals and Sustainable Development as we welcome Director Morgan Bazilian, presenting a webinar titled Critical Minerals in the Americas: Understanding the Opportunity on Tuesday, July 27, 2021 from 8:00am – 10:00am (MT).
Critical minerals will fuel the global shift to renewable energy and electrification. This transformation will depend on resilient supply chains delivering large quantities of copper, lithium, nickel, and other mineral inputs for new energy infrastructure and technology.
The Americas have been a great source of these minerals, but supplying the low-carbon transition will require an expanded and sustainably managed minerals sector and supply chain. If countries work together, this transformation may bring important widespread economic benefits to the region and help countries recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
You are invited to join stakeholders from government, international organizations, academia, civil society, and the private sector at the 2021 Mining and Sustainability Forum of the Americas on the theme: Regional Supply Chains for Critical Minerals.
With the aim of achieving new regional policies on critical minerals supply chains, this two-part virtual event will discuss practical regional policy options to be presented to mining ministers and the Annual Mines Ministries of the Americas Conference (CAMMA) meeting on September 2.
The webinars will include interpretation for participants in English and Spanish and are hosted by the Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals, Metals, and Sustainable Development (IGF) in partnership with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and Mines Ministries of the Americas Conference (CAMMA).
