About the Africa Mining Legislation Atlas
The African Mining Legislation Atlas (AMLA) is a legislation gathering, organization, dissemination, capacity building and capacity utilisation Project with three main activities: (i) collect, process and transform all of Africa’s mining laws and regulations into an online database with interactive features to provide comparative data; (ii) build capacity through training (on-ground and remotely) of African legal professionals, including advanced law students, a) in the use of the online platform and b) on overall issues in mining law; and (iii) produce the guiding template, an annotated document that outlines a menu of legislative solutions to assist countries in the preparation or revision of their mining laws.
The objective of the Project is to support African countries in maximizing mineral resource benefits through (i) promoting transparency, accessibility and comparison of Africa’s mining laws; (ii) facilitating the preparation, revision and implementation of mining laws; (iii) providing a living database that will catalyze research and policy debates on legal and regulatory issues; and (iv) promote the development of local legal expertise on African mining laws.
