Main Article Content

Abstract

Delivery of the Sustainable Development Goals within the agreed 15-year timetable aims for the improvement in the quality of life of many of the World’s poorest. These, coupled with a goal for the creation of new power generation and transmission technologies thus addressing the expectations of the Paris Agreement will increase demand for metals and minerals. To ensure continuity of supply in both minerals, concerted action and agreement at an international level is necessary. New, transparent, internationally agreed governance arrangements are needed to avoid disruption of supply and sustainably manage the efficient and effective exploitation of metal and mineral resources.
