The discussion will consider the challenges and opportunities of operationalisation of the SDGs in the mining industry.
This will include a brief review of South African mining regulations and international guidelines. The focus will be on presenting a set of SDG indicators for all mining host communities across South Africa, visualised as 'barometers for wellbeing'.
It will compare data for different commodities and different types of communities, classified by population size and level of influence of mining. It will present a correlation analysis for different SDG indicators and discuss possible factors affecting socio-economic wellbeing in mining host communities.
Finally, it will discuss barriers to the operationalisation of the SDGs in the mining industry, such as data gaps and unclear mining host community boundaries.
