The GHS – PANAF – PREMIMA
One of the objective of the Global Harmonized System For Panafrican Precious Minerals Management (GHS – PANAF – PREMIMA) is to improve the mineral resources policies, establish appropriate institutional, legal and regulatory frameworks, and invest in human skills, research and development, and geological and geophysical data, that are critical for the efficient and effective management of mineral resources”.
PREMIMA supports a “transparent, equitable and optimal exploitation of [Africa’s] mineral resources to underpin broad-based sustainable growth and socio-economic development”.
PREMIMA is a knowledge-driven African mining sector that catalyses and contributes to the broad based growth and development of, and is fully integrated into, a single African market in a single hub, the GHS – PANAF – PREMIMA.
PREMIMA promotes a sustainable and well-governed mining sector that effectively garners and deploys resource rents and that is safe, healthy, gender and ethnically inclusive, environmentally friendly, socially responsible and appreciated by surrounding communities.
