In-country workshops and webinars
The Global Tailings Review team ran workshops in Australia, Chile, China, Ghana, Kazakhstan and South Africa. A total of 21 sessions were run across these six countries to supplement the online consultation. A wide range of stakeholders were invited with varying levels of interest within each country. The in-country consultations commenced in Kazakhstan where the GTR took the opportunity to co-schedule the consultations to precede the United Nations on Economic Commission for Europe’s Sub-regional workshop on mine tailings safety for Central Asia. The event was therefore attended by government representatives from Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.
