Design of the ICGLR regional database on mineral flows

ICGLR secretariat

The Executive Secretariat of the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR), with the financial support of Partnership Africa Canada (PAC), has commissioned a consultancy to design the architecture of the ICGLR Regional Database on mineral flows, one of the six tools of the Regional Initiative on Natural Resources (Lusaka declaration). Estelle Levin Ltd. (ELL) and the International Peace Information Service (IPIS) have been recruited by the Secretariat to this purpose.

From August 14th to September 9th 2016, two IPIS researchers and two ELL consultants conducted a field mission through the Great Lakes Region to consult representatives of the ICGLR, Member State officials and other stakeholders on existing mineral databases and tracking systems, and critical requirements for the design of the ICGLR regional database.
