A Fairer Mining Regulatory Environment for African Countries: Presenting the Africa Mining Legislation Atlas (AMLA)

 Africa Mining Legislation Atlas (AMLA), aligned with the African Union’s Africa Mining Vision was set up to gather data on the legislative and regulatory context of mining in Africa. Covering 53 mining codes on the continent.

The main objectives are

  • To promote a transparent and comparative platform on mining law in Africa.
  • To provide an accessible database for the use of researchers and policy makers working on the legal and regulatory aspects of mining.
  • To catalyze debate on how mining regulatory mechanisms can be drawn on to better benefit African states and their communities.
  • To strengthen local legal expertise in the sector
