Mining and Community Development Framework for Kosovo
IIED collaborated with Riinvest Institute, Pristina, in a World Bank-funded project to develop a community development framework and community development guidelines. For IIED, the project built on our substantial experience working to analyse the public sector dimensions of efforts to encourage ‘corporate social responsibility'. It also raised the question ‘how can public sector actors catalyse and incentivise business good practice for local community development'?
The final project report from November 2007 contains the Community Development Framework, Community Consultation Guidelines, and accompanying implementation documents for Kosovo's Ministry Energy and Mineral Resources.
Final project report is available on The Ministry of Energy and Mining (MEM) website www.ks-gov.net
Full project documentation can be found on the detailed project website.
Documents available on this website include IIED's paper: ‘Who does what? Mining, community development and the respective roles and responsibilities of government and business', September 2006
IIED's International Review of Good Practice on Mining and Community Development, 2007 and
