IMAGinE Mongolia Outreach

You are invited to learn about the “Integrated Management and Governance in Extractives (IMAGinE) Mongolia” project from the Canadian International Resources and Development Institute (CIRDI).

Project lead, Dr. Julian Dierkes (Institute of Asian Research, UBC), will introduce the planned activities and invite collaboration from graduate students and colleagues who are focused on governance, policy and education related to mining; landlockedness; and Mongolia.

IMAGinE Mongolia is a multi-year project that supports provincial and local administrations in Mongolia with increased information so they can fully participate in the sustainable management of Mongolia’s extractive resources.

CIRDI’s mission: To improve, in a measurable way, the ability of developing countries to manage and benefit from their extractive sectors in order to catalyze sustainable economic growth and reduce poverty.
