Africa Mining Legislative Atlas (AMLA) - Extractives Baraza

The AMLA Workshop, part of the African Mining Legislation Atlas (AMLA) Project which aims to provide customized contextual and legal data on Africa’s mining laws through the AMLA website as well as building the capacity of Africa’s next generation of legal experts in mining law.

The AMLA workshop is organized at an African university on a yearly basis, to deepen the knowledge of Africa’s next generation of legal experts in mining law, as well as the Legal Research Team (LRT). The workshop also gathers the academics and practitioners in mineral law that serve as the advisory team to the LRT to facilitate knowledge sharing and the creation of a network of specialized African experts.

SEIC and EB in conjunction with the African Legal Support Facility (ALSF), co-hosted and co-convened the 2017 AMLA at the Strathmore University School of Law, with sponsorship from the African Development Bank and the World Bank. The 12-day workshop, held in Kenya for the first time in East Africa, brought students from all over Africa and put them through an intense training on mineral law in Africa.

In addition to trainings carried out in classroom settings, SEIC and EB co-organised:

  • An engaging high-level panel discussion themed ‘Governance and Transparency in the Extractives Sector’ with panellists drawn from World Bank Group, government, the Kenya Chamber of Mines and civil society organisations;
  • Extractives Baraza Amazing Race held at the Karura Forest Conservatory and which saw students and trainers work together to overcome a pre-set obstacle course and answer set questions on mining to complete the challenge. The challenge offered an innovative cross-cultural learning experience regarding mining legislation in Africa; and
  • Mine visit – all AMLA participants were treated to a visit of the Kariandusi Diatomite Mine site and pre-historic museum to provide a more practical approach to topics such as environment, health and safety.
