11 Sep

DSC00191The Zimbabwe Environmental Law Association (ZELA), the African Forum and Network on Debt and Development (AFRODAD), and other supporting partners are hosting this year’s Zimbabwe Alternative Mining Indaba (ZAMI) from the 10th- 11th of September 2013 at Crown Plaza in Harare.

The 2nd ZAMI follows the success of the inaugural ZAMI that was jointly organised and hosted by ZELA, the Economic Justice Network (EJN), the Zimbabwe Council of Churches (ZCC) and the Chiadzwa Community Development Trust (CCDT) from the 11th-13th of September 2012. This year’s ZAMI was preceded by the Provincial Alternative Mining Indabas in Manicaland and Midlands whose main objective was to provide a platform for communities affected by mining operations to discuss amongst themselves with policy makers, government, mining companies and civil society, the impacts of mining on livelihoods, human rights and environmental sustainability among others. This year’s ZAMI will be held under the theme “Community Rights, the key to Empowerment.”
