The Mining Policy Framework

2021-2-1  Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs) are required prior to the granting of mining permitsin each country, and must include the socialimpacts of the proposed mine. In Madagascar and Uganda, guidelines are provided to applicantsthat lay out the structure to which EIAs must conform. In the Dominican Republic, on the other hand, assessment requirements for large projects are ad hoc and determined through negotiationsbetween the government and the mining company. Community consultations are required in all three countries as part of the EIA process, which is in line with MPF standards; however, these consultations are only required during the initial impact assessment. They do not have to takeplace on an ongoing basis throughout the life of the mine. Regular reporting to the government on the mine’s environmental and social impacts is also typically required. The protection of indigenous peoples and cultural heritage, guidance on resettlement strategies, and ways of ensuringcommunity safety are mostly left out of mining legislation in the three assessed countries. Finally,there was generally found to be a lack of significant coordination among all relevant government ministries on mining
