MMSD Australia Final report
The report is the culmination of an intensive process of participatory research, analysis and consultation, which involved industry, state and federal government, research institutions, labour unions, and community, environment, human rights and indigenous groups. A draft version provided the basis for discussion at a series of regional multistakeholder workshops in February 2002.
Facing the Future draws on the outcomes of the MMSD Australia research programme, discussion at MMSD Australia stakeholder conferences in 2001, and some of the broader themes emerging from MMSD Global activities. It aims to present an independent, rigorous and inclusive analysis of the minerals sector's capacity to respond to the demanding and urgent challenges of sustainability.
