Extractives Industries Program: Mining & Indigenous Land Rights in Brazil: Proposed Legislation and Potential Consequences

EMIA hosted Claudia Melim-McLeod, Senior Advisor for Sustainable Finance at the Rainforest Foundation Norway to discuss the proposal introduced by the Brazilian government to permit mining inside Indigenous lands. According to research done by Rainforest Foundation Norway, Instituto Socioambiental and Aidenvironment, there are many pending requests from mining companies to operate in these lands once the regulation is approved.

In this webinar we explored which companies have requests as well as the next steps and potential consequences of the proposal.

This event was moderated by Veronica Ayzaguer, Director of Extractive Industries, Emerging Markets Investors Alliance.
