On 27 March 2019, the International Council on Mining & Metals (ICMM), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), announced they will co-convene a global tailings review to establish an international standard on tailings storage facilities. This review is in response to the catastrophic failure of a tailings storage facility in Brumadinho, Brazil. The aim is to complete this work by the end of the year.

As more dates of public interest become clear we will share them here.
